A Entertainment in Glasgow
Celtic Park has been the home of Celtic since 1892. The stadium was initially oval-shaped with cycling track, pavilion, and one wooden stand at the Janefield Street side. Four years later, in 1898, a new grand stand was built on the other side. This was the first ever double-decker stand at a football ground and lifted capacity to over 50,000.
Celtic Park reopened in 1995 with a newly built North Stand. Works continued on both ends, which were were completed in August 1998.
Celtic fans have used both Parkhead and Paradise as nicknames for Celtic Park.

The Private House Stay's Guide
To the east of George Square is the Merchant City, a fashionable place to eat, drink and play. Further east is the East End, a traditional working-class stronghold, and to the north is the oldest part of Glasgow, around the medieval cathedral. West of George Square is Buchanan Street, Sauchiehall Street and Argyle Street the city's principal shopping thoroughfares. From here the streets rise towards Blythswood Square, a much quieter area of elegant late Georgian buildings turned into offices. Beyond Charing Cross is the city's West End and home of some of the city's best museums.
