Cardiff, Europe’s youngest capital city, is famous for its castle, art, dragons, river, Victorian arcades, parks, rugby, music, university, bay and Brain’s beer. A more diverse list you could not imagine, so whether you are an art lover or rugby fan, enjoy historical castles or modern architecture, like listening to philharmonic orchestras or new bands in pubs, Cardiff really does offer something for everyone.
