Medieval castles, national parks, unspoiled coastlines and culture-rich cities make this United Kingdom country a thrilling place to visit. Wales packs a lot of scenic beauty into its compact size. The countryside is characterized by mountain ranges, wide river valleys, attractive coastline and ancient castles. Visit the towns and cities as well to see historic sites and cultural attractions.
