Cardiff (English:Cardiff (help·info) Welsh:Caerdydd (help·info)) is the capital, largest and core city of Wales. Located on the south coast of the country it is administered as a unitary authority.

It was a small town until the early nineteenth century and came to prominence as a major port for the transport of coal following the arrival of industry in the region. It eventually grew to become the largest city in Wales and serves as a major centre of culture, sport and history in the United Kingdom. Cardiff was made a city in 1905, proclaimed capital of Wales in 1955 and is today the 10th largest city in the United Kingdom. for more click here
