Dundee is a major port city in Scotland. It is located on the north bank of Tay RIver, which feeds into North Sea. The city is Scotland's 4th-largest (after Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen) with population around 150,000. Covering a total area of 60 km2 (20 ml2), it is also the UK's 51st-most-populous city (population density 2480 / km2 or 6420 / ml2).
Historically, Dundee has been part of Angus. In medieval times the city developed into a burgh and rapidly expanded in the 19th century largely because of jute industry. Along with other major industries, this gave Dundee the epithet as town of "jute, jam and journalism". The recorded population of Dundee reached a peak of 182,200 at 1971 census.
Today, the city of Dundee is promoted 'One City, Many Discoveries' in honour of its history of scientific activities and RRS Discovery, the Antarctic exploration vessel of Robert Falcon Scott, built in Dundee and berthed in the city harbour. Technological and biomedical industries have arrived since 1980s, and the city currently accounts for 10% of United Kingdom's digital-entertainment industry. In 2014 Dundee city was recognised by the UN as UK's first UNESCO City of Design due to its diverse contributions to such fields as medical research, video games and comics.
A unique feature of the city is that its professional football clubs Dundee F.C. and Dundee United have their stadiums all but adjacent to each other.
Dundee was once noted for journalists, jam and jute. It remains the world's marmalade capital and still produces more than its newspaper writers' share. Visitors will find little of interest in the city - Dundee's old centre was destroyed during World War II. The major attraction in the city is Maritime and Whaling Museum and ship Discovery, which was used on the 1st Antarctic expedition of Captain Robert Scott.
To the north of Dundee, travelers can see Macbeth's Glamis Castle (more recently birthplace and childhood home of Queen Mother). Also in that region are Brechin Round Tower (created over 1,000 years ago by Irish monks) and the unique gardens of Edzell Castle. To the northeast lie the spectacular remains of Dunnottar Castle and beautiful ruins of Arbroath Abbey. In Broughty Ferry, a bizarre village to the east of Dundee, the Claypotts Castle's architects experimented with many forms and styles and forms, creating a hybrid structure that is really awesome. To the south visit Saint Andrews, one of Scotland's most historic towns.
