Cardiff was a small town until the early 19th century, when it became the major port for the transport of coal from the South Wales Valleys to the new coal fueled centers of the Kingdom's 'Industrial Revolution'. The arrival of industry in the region contributed additionally to its rise as a major city. Cardiff has only become a city in 1905, it was proclaimed the capital of Wales in 1955.

Today the city has a population of almost 350,000 inhabitants (in 2015). Spoken languages are Welsh and English.

In the UK's EU referendum on 23rd June 2016, Cardiff voted 60% to remain.
