The Titanic Museum is such an interesting building, both inside and out. It sits at the head of the slipway where the Titanic was built. At night, lights in the ground illuminate in the outline of the ship.

Belfast Peace Wall

The Troubles, which only concluded in 1998, are a significant part of Northern Ireland’s history. This wall was built as a divide between Catholics and Protestants, however, it was not a religious conflict, it was political. Today, the wall stretches several kilometers and is covered in writing and murals.

Victoria Square

This indoor/outdoor shopping mall was one of my favorite places to shop in the city. It has 70+ stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. The most unique part about this complex is the observation deck. Take the elevator as high as it will go and you will have a stunning 360-degree view of Belfast.
