The history of Belfast as a settlement goes back to the Iron Age, but its status as a major urban centre dates to the 18th century. Belfast is currently the capital of Northern Ireland. Throughout its modern history, Belfast was a major commercial and industrial centre, but in the late 20th century there was a decline in its traditional industries, particularly shipbuilding. Due to Belfast’s fast moving businesses, it was known as the world’s linen capital and was nicknamed Linenopolis. Some top sights in Belfast include; Titanic Belfast, Belfast City Hall, Belfast Castle, SS Nomadic, Botanic Gardens, Cavehill, and more.
