Pictures from Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland. Situated on the eastern coast, it has played a significant role in the economic, political, and cultural development of the region.

The city has a rich history marked by industrialisation, notable shipbuilding (including the construction of the RMS Titanic).

Belfast boasts various landmarks, including Belfast City Hall, the Titanic Belfast museum, Stormont Estate (housing the Northern Ireland Assembly), Botanic Gardens and numerous historic churches.

Economically, Belfast has transitioned from its historical dependence on shipbuilding and linen production to diversify into sectors such as finance, education, and tourism. The city is cosmopolitan, modern and has exceptional cultural and visual appeal.

The city has a vibrant cultural scene with theatres, museums, and galleries, and it hosts various events and festivals throughout the year.

The Good Friday Agreement of 1998 marked a turning point in Belfast's history, leading to the end of much of the violence associated with The Troubles and contributing to the establishment of a more stable political environment.
