Nationale parken

De natuurlijke schoonheid van Wales is uitzonderlijk. Het kan bogen op drie Nationale parken en vijf 'gebieden van buitengewone natuurlijke schoonheid', te weten: Wye Valley, Gower Pensinsula, Llyn Peninsula, Isle of Anglesey en Clwydian Range. In het noorden is het schitterende Snowdonia National Park vernoemd naar de hoogste berg van Wales en Engeland. Dit ruige landschap is de favoriet bij wandelaars en bergbeklimmers. Zuid-Wales is gevuld met wijdse vrije natuur van Brecon Beacons National Park. En in het westen Pembrokeshire National Park een kustlijn van 300 kilometer lang met kliffen, kleine baaien en nog onbedorven stranden.

Geschiedenis van Wales

The Romans mined for gold here, the Tudor dynasty was founded here, and the Normans built castles here. Each of the major periods of history has left its mark on Wales, some more attractive than others. The scars of the industrial revolution are now being healed by a forward-looking people with their own National Assembly. But the sense of past can still be felt all around Wales: from a windy hilltop with a half-ruined castle, to the quiet darkness of a mine miles underground.

Muziek & Cultuur

Since 1906 the Welsh Folk Song Society has done valuable work in collecting and publishing this material. Choral singing, stemming from the religious revival of the late 18th century, is an extremely popular and characteristic part of Welsh musical life. Traditional instruments, especially the harp, are still played. The Welsh National Opera Company and the Welsh Theatre Company are notable contemporary arts companies. Wales also has a number of notable orchestras and an important dance company, Diversions, based in Cardiff.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Eisteddfod
The National Eisteddfod of Wales can be traced back to 1176 when it is said that the first Eisteddfod was held , under the auspices of Lord Rhys, at his castle in Cardigan. There he held a grand gathering to which were invited poets and musicians from all over the country. A chair at the Lord's table was awarded to the best poet and musician, a tradition that prevails in the modern day National Eisteddfod.
 Welsh -  taal uit Wales
Het Welsh wordt gesproken in Wales en is evenals het Gaelic en het Bretons een Keltische taal. De Kelten werden door invasies van andere volken teruggedreven tot het uiterste westen (Wales, Ierland) en Bretagne in Frankrijk, en behielden altijd hun eigen cultuur en taal.
