Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and the third largest in terms of population in the UK. The city's origin is linked to its role as a seaport on the River Clyde. Glasgow is one of Europe's most important financial centres, and is home to many of Scotland's leading businesses.
Public transport within the city is managed mostly by the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT). The city benefits from a large rail network as well as a metro system.
