Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, and also The Dynamite Doctor's second home.
Cardiff is the capital and largest city in Wales and the ninth largest city in the United Kingdom. The city is the country's chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh national media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales. The unitary authority area's mid-2011 population was estimated to be 346,100, while the population of the Larger Urban Zone was estimated at 861,400 in 2009. Cardiff is a significant tourist centre and the most popular visitor destination in Wales with 18.3 million visitors in 2010. In 2011, Cardiff was ranked sixth in the world in National Geographic's alternative tourist destinations.
It's on Earth, which is covered in water, but you can't drink most of it because it's full of sharks. Cardiff is in Wales, which is full of The Welsh. But luckily they have translations on all of the signs so you know where everything is. Look! They even have Tesco's- it's like being in the same country (As... the UK?) but better! Cardiff is not just about water, there's sights, sounds and smells to keep you interested too. They make telly here as well, including classic favourites like Doctor When, A+E Drama Thing and Welsh language shows that no-one watches. Yes, Cardiff contains many things to attract people to live, just a shame the house prices are so high!
The city of Cardiff is the county town of the historic county of Glamorgan (and later South Glamorgan). Cardiff is part of the Eurocities network of the largest European cities. The Cardiff Urban Area covers a slightly larger area outside the county boundary, and includes the towns of Dinas Powys and Penarth. A small town until the early 19th century, its prominence as a major port for the transport of coal following the arrival of industry in the region contributed to its rise as a major city.
Cardiff was made a city in 1905, and proclaimed the capital of Wales in 1955. Since the 1990s, Cardiff has seen significant development. A new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay contains the Senedd building, home to the Welsh Assembly and the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex. Current developments include the continuation of the redevelopment of the Cardiff Bay and city centre areas with projects such as the Cardiff International Sports Village, a BBC drama village, and a new business district in the city centre.
Cardiff has been subjected to several disasters in recent years, including a zombie apocalypse and giant spaceships appearing out of nowhere on two seperate occasions.
