Wales (Welsh: Cymru) has a living Celtic culture, with the Welsh language spoken by a fifth of the 3 million inhabitants. The country has scenic mountains and coasts, imposing castles, and much of Britain’s industrial heritage. The country has many significant attractions, and much of Wales’ scenery is spectacular, and environmentally important.
To protect the environment, certain parts of Wales have been designated as “National Parks” or as “Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. These areas offer some of Wales’ most attractive scenery, and a visitor would be well advised to visit at least one of these - time permitting of course. That is not to say that there aren’t other attractive places in Wales of course, but these are often considered by the people who live here as the “jewels in the outdoor crown” of Wales.
