Ãëàçage – the largest city in Scotland. In terms of the number of population Gleuzha is the third largest city in the United Kingdom, after London and Birmingham. It is the administrative center of a single city and is located 32 km from the mouth of the Clyde River. Archaeologists have found evidence that communities in Glasgow have existed since Neolithic times. Later the Greeks were settled by the Celtic tribes. The Romans, who conquered Britain in 142-144 A.D., built fortifications that crossed the borders of Scotland from one coast to the other. Antoninins enclosure protected against the invasions of the North. The remains of this structure can still be seen on the outskirts of Glasgow.

According to legend, the city was founded by the mystic Saint Moongo, who built a monastery on the banks of the Molindindinar River in 543. However, there is no evidence to support this fact. Regardless, St. Móngo is considered the patron saint of Glasgow and is depicted on its crest.

In the late 12th century, Glasgows population reached three hundred and fifty thousand, and it became an important religious center. In 1136, a cathedral was consecrated in Glasgow, built on the site where the church of Monugo had stood. King David I attended the event. Later on, around 1776, King William I of Glasgow granted the status of a self-governing city. This leads to the development of trade and the prosperity of the city. From 1190 onward, the annual summer market began to take place in the vicinity of Glasgow. This tradition remains to this day. In 1451, Pope Nicholas V founded a university in the city, which made Claude not only a religious but also an educational center of Scotland. However, the citys geographical location did not allow it to trade with European countries, so trade in Gales was weak compared to the cities on the eastern coast of Scotland.

Holzog remained a small, traditional market town until the 17th century. The citys able-bodied population was mostly engaged in remodeling. The citys prosperity came after King James I conquered Scotland and England in 1603. The development of Glasgow could not be hampered by the plague of 1647, nor by fire or other calamities. This led to the fact that in 1670, Gales was second only to Edinburgh – the capital of Scotland. Several factors accounted for this economic growth: In 1668, a port was opened in the town of Newark, the village of Glasgow, which led to the development of outside, and later transitory, trade; the opening of a sugar and sugar factory and a soap factory in 1667; From 1680 to 1730 paper, glass, and brick production began; the factory was opened in 1711; In 1736 a metallurgical factory, a pressed tobacco factory and a weaving factory were opened; in 1740 the colorful masters shop began its work. All of this had a positive effect on the outside of the city, and a ban imposed by the authorities after several fires forced the inhabitants to build houses of stone. In 1636 the city hall was built, in 1649 – the Hospitallers College, and in 1661 the Library of the University. In 1715 the first city newspaper, the Glasgow Courant, was published in Glasgow. Further development of metal, textile and textile industries makes Glasgow the fastest growing city in Great Britain.
