Dating back to the Middle Ages, the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, and the second largest on the island of Ireland, Belfast has a rich history. Nestled beside the River Lagan and Belfast Lough, it has a lovely setting, often called "the Hibernian Rio," a long natural inlet ideal for the shipping trade. One of the last great oceangoing liners, the famous Titanic, was built here in the world famous Belfast Shipyard. Take a stroll and admire the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian architecture, dominated by the magnificently domed City Hall. Today`s Belfast offers beautifully restored Victorian architecture, a splendid waterfront lined with modern art, a fantastic foodie scene and music-filled pubs.
