    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    One of the longest established cities in the U.K, Cardiff has been occupied for at least 2,000 years since the Romans first established a fort on the site of the current Cardiff Castle. For thousands of years it was simply a small little coastal town until the Industrial Revolution saw it go from being just a little dot on the map to a major coal exportation center, which for a time transformed it into one of the most important cities in the world. Today it is the capital of Wales.

    It is the primary commercial center for the nation and a major gateway into the small country, seeing more than 12 million tourists pass through its walls every single year. It is a major port city and has seen continued growth even into the 21st century, making it one of the largest cities in Europe as part of the Eurocities network. All in all, Cardiff has a lot of chest-flexing reasons to boast.

    Yet for all of that, the city is fairly reserved. It boasts a history that few others can claim, with archeology showing that the area has been populated since nearly 4,000 B.C. Both the Romans and the Normans were here at some point, and the spread of architectural wonders can be seen in such buildings as the Cardiff Castle and the Llandaff Cathedral.

    The Castell Coch was built for the 3rd Marquis of Bute, who at one point in time was considered to be the richest man in the entire world, and there are plenty of museums spread throughout the city as well. On top of that, Cardiff serves as a major headquarter for outdoor sports and activities, such as hiking and exploring or heading out into the open water, making this a perfect summer holiday destination for the adventurous soul.
