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.
