Cardiff, (Caerdydd, Welsh), is the capital city of Wales. It lies at the mouths of the Ely and Taff rivers on the Bristol Channel. Cardiff is the largest city in Wales and is an important industrial, administrative and commercial centre.
Cathays Park is situated in the city centre and contains impressive baroque-style buildings of Civic Centre, including the Welsh Office, City Hall, Assize Courts, Temple of Peace and National Museum of Wales. Cardiff Castle is close by, reconstructed by William Burges for the Marquis of Bute in the 19th century. The Welch Regiment Museum and the Welsh School of Music and Drama are located in the castle. Nearby is 15th-century church of St John the Baptist. The founded in the 6th century Llandaff Cathedral was badly damaged in World War II, after which it was completely restored. In the old docks area, the City created "Europe's most exciting waterfront development" at Cardiff Bay incorporating shops, museums, restaurants, housing and a marina.
In c.AD 75, an early Roman outpost was established. A Norman castle was erected in the 11th century, when Robert FitzHamon built a fort on the motte which today stands within the walls of Cardiff Castle. A small market town developed near the castle, and Cardiff grew in importance as a market for the surrounding area. However, the Industrial Revolution and the consequent need for coal was the impetus for the growth of Cardiff and by the end of 19th century it was the world's leading coal-exporting port.
