The capital is Cardiff. In comparison, Denmark’s area is 42.924 km, and 2.221.000 km² including the Faroe Islands and Greenland. So approx. 1/2 of southern Denmark.
North Wales is Welsh “to the bone”. It is a holiday region known to Englishmen, who believe in language and tradition, music and history. Here you will find magnificent castles, old fine railways still running and music festivals. The sometimes dramatic scenery offers an obvious adventure trip: waterfalls, mountains, the coast at Snowdonia with beaches with sand and rocks. It could also be a playground for those seeking adventure.

The nation has been dependent on England since the 12th century. However, the Celtic character has been retained and has since the 19th century formed the basis for a national movement, Plaid Cymru, which in 1966 became a representative in Parliament.
