Situated in the South of Wales, Swansea sits by the sea and is just 70 km from Cardiff and 130 km from Bristol. It is the second biggest city in Wales. It was an important industrial centre and port during XIX and XX centuries; however during the Second World War it was practically destroyed. Today Swansea offers a mix of old and new which is surprising and beautiful for visitors to behold. It is a city that lives facing the sea, with a beautiful bay that stretches for 10 km with fine sandy beaches. The streets are alive with shops, historical and emblematic buildings such as Swansea Castle from the XII century. Also, the Waterfront Museum presents their industrial history and their prestigious Maritime Museum heritage.
