City of Castles
The capital of Wales, Cardiff is a very green city indeed, boasting more green space per person than any other place in the country. Once considered a drab industrial town with few tourist attractions, Cardiff is now a lively and modern urban center that's a growing favorite with travelers interested in Welsh history and culture. The city center has been pleasantly pedestrianized and is quickly climbing up the list of the finest shopping destinations in the UK. With five historic castles in the surrounding area, Cardiff is often accurately described as the "city of castles." For most tourists sightseeing in the area, summer may be the best time to plan a vacation, as the city hosts a wide range of cultural festivals, many of which are free. Cardiff is in South Wales.
