About Glasgow

Settled in the 6th century, Glasgow traces its origins to a small pastoral community that formed around a cathedral. The city welcomed the University of Glasgow, the country’s second university, in 1451. One of the largest seaports in Britain, the city became a center of commerce in the 18th century due to the sugar, cotton, and tobacco trade between America and Europe. The city was a focal point of Scottish enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution. As the agricultural trade waned in the 19th century, Glasgow concentrated on other endeavors, such as shipbuilding and the steel industry. The opening of the Forth and Clyde Canal in 1795 was a major reason for the transition. The waterway facilitated easy access to the area’s rich coalmines and iron-ore deposits. One of first cities in Europe to reach a population of one million, Glasgow was the epicenter of Britain’s munitions industries during both the first and second world wars. After the end of World War II, Glasgow suffered a major setback in its manufacturing-based economy that lasted well into the 1970s.

Since that time, Glasgow’s economy has made significant advances. The city has won several awards for culture, art, and design. Its historical Victorian architecture now stands side-by-side with steel and glass, contemporary office buildings. Glasgow is a dynamic and ever-changing city with a robust music and arts scene. The museums and open-air paths along the River Clyde pay homage to Glasgow’s fascinating history. The city serves as the headquarters for many of Scotland’s national arts organizations. Glasgow’s current economy is built upon heavy engineering, bioscience, education as well as healthcare and the retail sector. Known as “Wall Street on Clyde,” the city is one of Europe’s leading financial centers and a top tourist destination.
