About the UK ::: Wales
For lovers of nature or the great outdoors, Wales is the place to be. The long coastline changes by the mile from sandy beaches to hidden coves, mountain-backed estuaries to spectacular cliffs and bays.
A love of the outdoor life has been one of the factors that has encouraged sporting excellence in the country. Wales’s national sport is rugby and has produced more than its fair share of great players.
Wales is also a nation in love with the word and music. The traditions of the eisteddfod have nurtured great artistic expression since medieval times. Writers, poets, and singers express a passion for Wales that reaches out to embrace a wide audience.
Cardiff, in the south of the country, gives a contemporary and cosmopolitan feel to many parts of the country. Along with neighbouring Swansea, which boasts a stunning waterfront.
