Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle

Wales is a country which has a long history. It has many important historical sites to visit such as Cardiff Castle because Wales has a lot of castles.

Cardiff Castle is located in the center of Cardiff city which was built by Roman soldiers. Inside the castle there is beautiful decor such as the Arab Room which is one room of this castle. One highlight, as can be seen from the picture above, is that it is decorated very beautifully with a design by the masterpieces of William Burges.

Originally, it was designed to be used as a living room, but sometimes it becomes a bedroom for guests. The ceiling of this room is made of wood and decorated with a gold decorative style known as Muqarnas to support the weight of the roof. On the outside you can see the symbol of Wales. It is a red dragon. And Cardiff has Millennium Stadium which is famous all over the world.

So, I hope to visit Cardiff Castle someday because I want to see a beautiful interior decoration.

Beautiful

I looks like such a beautiful castle. I love seeing how historical monuments are able to keep their beauty after many Many MANY centuries. It makes me appreciate the amount of detail to structure and design olden day engineers and architects put into making it.
