As Northern Ireland's largest city, Belfast has always been a hub of trade and activity, building a solid foundation for the busy, happening city it is today. Belfast is a dynamic melting pot of old and new split into areas which reflect its history. The city's landmark architecture tells the story of its past - the Linen warehouses and shipyards add a historical reference to the stylish modern city Belfast is today. And no visit to Belfast would be complete without a visit to the birthplace of the Titanic, which sailed and sank on its maiden voyage in 1912. Today one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ireland is in Belfast's Titanic Quarter – the iconic Titanic Museum.
