I loved the city because it had a working-class grittiness to it that you don’t see most other cities having. The history of the Troubles is so entrenched within the country and they have amazing murals on the walls honoring what they went through as well as other social justice activists. While walking through the city you get a sense of what they went through to get to where they are now and it was bloody. Queen’s University Belfast is absolutely jaw-droppingly gorgeous.
Belfast should be a bucket list location for anyone, not only for the history but for the beauty.
