Presentation
Belfast is the largest city and capital of Northern Ireland and the province of Ulster, being the second largest city on the island of Ireland.

A 17th-century village, this rugged northern metropolis of nearly half a million people - a third of Northern Ireland's population - has much in common with Liverpool and Manchester, those airy cities across the Irish Sea. Belfast was the engine room that drove the wheels of the industrial revolution in Ulster. The development of industries such as linen, rope making, and shipbuilding doubled the size of the city every ten years. The world's largest dry dock is located here and the shipyard's giant cranes tower over the harbor.

Today the city and river are being transformed again and much of the city center is now pedestrian friendly, with benches where you can sit and listen to street musicians.

There are many lush Victorian and Edwardian buildings with elaborate carvings on doors and windows. Heads of gods and poets, scientists, kings and queens carved in stone peek from the high edges of the benches and the old linen warehouses.
