A pearl in the center of Cardiff, a city with a unique charm: home to the national museum, food, drink, shopping, a spectacular castle and more. Wales is a distinctive part of the UK, with its own character, language (spoken by over half a million people), culture and lifestyle of its own. About a quarter of the country is designated as a National Park or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Wales has around 230 beaches and 50 islands. The beaches are recognized as being among the best in the world, with 73 coastal areas that meet the high standards required to receive the prestigious Blue Flag, Green Coast Award or Seaside Award. A nation that has been called the world capital of castles (there are over 600). Many famous actors, singers, writers, poets, musicians and artists were born in or hail from Wales, including Anthony Hopkins, Tom Jones, Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Sheen, Christian Bale and Taron Egerton.
Rugby is the national sport of Wales and the Welsh national football team has also performed well internationally in recent years (including qualifying for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar). The star is undoubtedly Gareth Bale, multiple European champion with Real Madrid. This and much more is Wales, very easy to reach even by public transport. Both by air, by land and by sea. And at the Principality Stadium everything is now ready for a historic event.
