Cardiff in the Vale of Glamorgan is the largest and most populous city in Wales. It has been a city for just over 100 years and for a little over 50 years now, it is the capital of Wales. Thanks to the major sporting venues that the city is rich, it has been voted European city of Sports in 2009. These venues include the Millennium Stadium for the football and rugby fans and the SWALEC Stadium for the Cricket fans. Even if you like minor sports like basketball and baseball or even motor racing and athletics, you will find top venues and top stars here.
Thanks to the preservation of the old Cardiff the city hosts some impressive buildings and statures that are worth visiting all year round. Because of the location of Cardiff it is indeed possible to visit all year round as the temperature is always around the same mild/modest level.
It is easy to get to and from Cardiff and to move around in Cardiff. The M4 motorway leads all the way from Swansea in the West to London in the East. In Cardiff you will find that a large part of the inner city has been closed off for private vehicles. Buses and taxis are still allowed with buses offering great service and speed over a longer distance thanks to the special bus lanes. There are also buses to Cardiff international airport which is the only one of its kind in Wales. The airport is a mere 16km away to the city's west side.
Going for a walk in Cardiff can be a lot of fun as there will be new and old buildings almost lined up to impress you.
The New Cardiff Library is indeed that and an impressive glass building to capture your attention. Try to see it with the sun bearing down on it. Cardiff University will soon be celebrating its 125th year anniversary, but even without these celebrations for a few more years it is nice to see such a wide and majestic building. Other ancient buildings include, of course, many castles and there is a wealth of castles in the area. St Fagan's Castle and Castell Coch or there amongst of course Cardiff Keep and Cardiff Castle.
