The Cardiff center is about the area of Cardiff Castle and the area of St. David's Hall.

Cardiff, Wales is the largest city in the country. It is also the tenth-largest city in the United Kingdom, which is made up of four different countries--England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Cardiff is home to the National Assembly for Wales. The population in the city itself is 346,100 people, while the metro area has a population of about 1,100,000. Cardiff is the most popular visitor destination in the country, and hosts over 18 million tourists each year. According to National Geographic, Cardiff is the world's sixth most popular alternative tourist destination.

Because so many people come to the city, Cardiff offers a number of destination spots, sporting venues, and cultural events. The Cardiff City football team plays at Cardiff City Stadium, the Wales national rugby team calls Millennium Stadium its home, and Glamorgan County Cricket Club plays at SWALEC Stadium. With so many teams and stadiums in the city, it's no surprise that Cardiff was the European City of Sport twice in the last several years. More from this guide...
