The capital of Wales-Cardiff. Caught between an ancient fort and an ultramodern waterfront, compact Cardiff seems to have surprised even itself with how interesting it has become. The city has entered the 21st century pumped up on steroids, flexing its recently acquired architectural muscles as if it’s still astonished to have them. This newfound confidence is infectious, and these days it’s not just the rugby that draws crowds into the city. Come the weekend, a buzz reverberates through the streets as swarms of shoppers hit the Hayes, followed by waves of revelers descending on the capital’s thriving pubs, bars and live-music venues. Cardiff makes an excellent base for day trips to the surrounding valleys and coast, where you’ll find castles, beaches, interesting industrial sites and ancient monuments.
St Fagans National Museum of History, commonly referred to as St Fagans after the village where it is located, is an open-air museum in Cardiff chronicling the historical lifestyle, culture, and architecture of the Welsh people. The museum is part of the wider network of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales.
