Wales is one of the countries that make up the United Kingdom. Although the country has few major cities, it has a unique cultural identity, extensive industrial heritage and archaeology, and many areas of landscape beauty.
Wales is home to three World Heritage Sites — the collection of mediaeval castles built following the Edwardian conquest, the industrial landscape of Blaenavon in the valleys, and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct — and to three contrasting National Parks — the moors and valleys of the Brecon Beacons, the rocky Irish Sea coast of Pembrokeshire, and the mountains of Snowdonia.
