Cardiff is the capital city of Wales. Wales' capital city is it's main commercial and economic centre and is the home of many national and cultural institutions, including the Parliament for Wales (the Senedd), the Welsh media (BBC and S4C), museums and arts centres and the Wales Rugby Union and the Welsh rugby team. As capital cities go, it is small with a population of about 350,000. But Cardiff is one of Europe's most dynamic, vibrant and fastest growing capital cities. Cardiff Bay, some 2 miles from the city centre is a place of recreation as well as the home to the Senedd, the Wales Millennium Centre and the unusual Norwegian Church with its connections to Roald Dahl!
