The city has gained popularity as a tourist attraction for all those interested in the region’s history and Welsh culture in general; it is in fact getting to be one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.
The city offers quite a lot of varied attractions to its visitors but a couple of landmarks have to be seen while you’re on a trip there.
Cardiff Castle is one of those must-see landmarks being a rather large building whose foundations were built on a Roman fort. Nowadays it is open to the public and within its ground you can visit the Norman fort located at its center, the Welsh regimental museum as well as visit the excavation of the Roman ruins. It should be noted that the inside of the castle is adorned in all manner of works of art so definitely worth a visit as well.
The city also has a great example of modern architecture in the Wales Millennium Centre. The building opened in 2004 is home to many large scale events related to opera, dance and West End musicals.
Another important landmark of the city is the City Hall whose domed roof is topped by a Dragon. The building was made with white Portland stone and inside, the marble hall is dominated by statues of Welsh heroes and large bronze chandeliers, it is indeed a sight to see for one’s self.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Cardiff so make sure to consider our Cardiff car hire services in order to see as many of the sights as possible.
