Introduction to Belfast
Belfast is a upcoming coastal city and Northern Ireland’s capital and has become a very popular travel destination in recent years, having survived the troubled period which began in the late 60s and lasted for over thirty years. These days, Belfast is a trendy place to enjoy a city break and also an upcoming business destination due its favorable business climate. Hotels in Belfast are excellent and although the city has a reputation for being a party town, there’s also much of cultural interesting place to see as well, notably its maritime heritage. Famous for being the city which built the Titanic ( the famous Cruise ship from the movie Titanic ), there are frequent reminders of the ill-fated ocean liner in Belfast, and in 2012 (the centenary of Titanic’s demise) a huge festival was planned to commemorate the building of the doomed ship.

Belfast in Northern Ireland hosts many interesting cultural sites, including Belfast Castle, which is in fact a Victorian stately home in the Scottish Baronial style, with famous views from its commanding position on Cave Hill. The Ulster Museum, Northern Ireland’s national museum and art gallery in one, only therefore already a must see in Belfast; the exhibit is the treasure that washed ashore during the Spanish Armada.
St Anne’s Cathedral is also worth a visit, while the impressive City Hall offers guided tours and also has a memorial to the victims of Titanic in its grounds, as the Titanic was build in Belfast. The Belfast Zoo is a fun family day out for all ages; the zoo is a ‘cageless’ zoo housing over 140 different types of animals, the majority endangered. Don’t miss the prairie dogs, who run under much of the park and mostly run free.
If the mood for a little shopping? Head for St George Market, a Victorian covered market opened in 1896 and the last in the region. Round off a day of sightseeing with a visit to the Crown Liquor Saloon, Belfast’s most famous and popular public house. Owned by the National Trust, it is as noted for its historical and continental interior as it is for its drinking and dining with its typical Northern Ireland atmosphere.
