Belfast is a city that has suffered greatly from its political and ideological differences. On one side are the Protestants, Conservatives and supporters of the United Kingdom and on the other side are the Catholics and separatists, who have always felt excluded and who want to join Ireland.
The Titanic departed from Belfast, the site of its construction, to Southampton, near London, where several passengers boarded. The next stop was the port of Cherbourg, where some passengers came and other went. What luck to these last ones, don't you think?
The Titanic was built to be the largest, most luxurious and safest ship in the world, thus competing with the Cunard Line, which was known for creating very large and fast steamers.
The TOP 1 of any Belfast travel itinerary is the Titanic Museum, no doubt. I was very curious but never thought it would be so good and so unforgettable. I advise visiting anyone, especially boat lovers like me. 😉
The first place I visited in Belfast was the castle located right up there in Cavehill Park, 120 meters from sea level. So it has an incredible view of the city and can be seen from anywhere in it.
Bom dia. A Calçada do Gigante, património mundial da UNESCO desde 1986, é uma reserva geológica de cerca de 40 000 pedras basálticas prismáticas cuja formação se iniciou há cerca de 60 milhões de anos quando Pangeia se dividia para formar o Oceano Atlântico. Good morning. Giant´s Causeway, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1986,…
Hello, hello! Northern Ireland, previously unknown to tourists, is now a favourite tourist destination for lovers of the Game of Thrones, but not only for them!!! Yes, I HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN the show but I wanted to visit some of its scenery for its natural beauty, and to show you, of course.
Ireland's independence from British rule and the creation of the Republic of Ireland took place in 1921. Still, six of Ireland's counties in the Ulster region decided to remain united with Britain. This was the cause of many conflicts between the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and the British army, which caused thousands of deaths on both sides and further segregated (nationalist) Catholics from Protestants.
