Introducing Cardiff


Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, and in recent years has developed itself into a truly modern and cosmopolitan place, offering the best in culture, history and sporting entertainment as well as plenty of fine dining and great nightlife. There are stunning new buildings such as the Millennium Centre – a fantastic arts and cultural venue – the slate and glass Welsh Parliament Building and the Millennium Stadium with its impressive sliding roof. Despite its modern look, the city is not afraid to remember its past and the National Museum – one of the best in Europe – and Cardiff's centrally located Castle do this well.
