The civic centre area of Cardiff is very impressive. Real capital city air about it.

Thanks guys

This was always the main street of the city, its been neglected for quite some time now and with all the construction around the rest fo teh center has suffered quite a bit. it does contain though most of the the most impressive archtiecture and its refurbishment really feels like the heart fo the city is back

Beautiful! Are those bilingual signs a heritage thing, or is gaelic widely spoken?
