General Information About The City:
Belfast is the most populous city in Northern Ireland and the second-largest urban area in Ireland after Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland. It has a population of 2,800/km2. The Belfast metropolitan area has a population of 579,000. The city is built around two main rivers: the Lagan, which flows into Belfast Lough, and the Farset. Although Belfast’s origins lie in the early 16th-century Plantation of Ulster when Protestants began settling in the area, most historical architecture is from the Victorian era onwards because little of the city was built. Belfast is Northern Ireland’s most populous city and as such has a thriving cultural scene.
Home to the largest arts festival in Ireland as well as several festivals celebrating local culture throughout the city, Belfast is a welcoming place for locals and visitors alike.

Belfast has a deep history, which can be discovered in the Ulster Museum, the Botanical Gardens, the Titanic Belfast experience, and numerous historic churches including St Anne’s Cathedral.
