As part of the Your Cardiff series of blog posts, we ask people in the city what makes Cardiff great for them.

We bumped into Bernard at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Bernard came to visit Cardiff from Vigan City in the Phillipines, some 10,000km away.

“What I like about Cardiff are the family activities, historical sites like the castles and culture in general.” Bernard told us. We wondered if he was at the Millennium Centre picking up some tickets. “Unfortunately I don’t have time for any performances this time” he confessed. “I’m planning to watch a football game with friends!”

Cardiff really is a city of contrasts. Catch a football game or an opera, like Bernard, or stay longer and do both. Sports are huge in Cardiff, as are the arts.
