Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland, a region that has seen more than its share of unrest almost since its creation in 1921. Recently, however, the violence has decreased substantially and Belfast (and Northern Ireland as a whole) is seeing a dramatic increase in tourism. When you visit, don’t forget to enjoy a pint of Guinness in what some say is Northern Ireland’s most beautiful pub, the Crown Liquor Saloon on Great Victoria St. Even if you don’t imbibe, you’ll have plenty of atmosphere to drink in!
