a lovely city that is moving forward
Even though I spent most of my time at the old town, it did not take long to discover that Belfast is also a very modern city. The violent clashes between catholics and protestants seem to be something of the past (I know they still occur ocasionally but that should not discourage any prospective tourist). It is very easy to get around by public transportation and the city offers a wide range of tourist attractions.
Insider Tip:I would suggest a stay of at least three days for those who want to learn (or experience) some of its history and visit the most important attractions.
