Geography Wales is located on a peninsula in central-west Great Britain. Its area is about 20,779 km 2. Wales is bordered by England to the east and by sea in the other three directions.
Wales has three National Parks: Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast. The highest mountains in Wales are in Snowdonia, and Snowdon (1,085 m ) is the highest peak in Wales.
INDUSTRY Parts of Wales have been heavily industrialised since the 18th century and the early Industrial Revolution. Coal, cooper, iron, silver, lead and gold have been extensively mined in Wales, and slate has been quarried.
INDUSTRY By the second half of the 19th century, mining and metallurgy had come to dominate the Welsh economy, transforming the landscape and society in the industrial districts of south and north-east Wales.
Demographics The population of Wales in the United Kingdom Census 2001 was 2,903,085, which has risen to 2,958,876 according to 2005 estimates. The main population and industrial areas are in South Wales, consisting of the city of Cardiff.
Art Many works of Celtic art have been found in Wales. The Welsh painter Richard Wilson (1714–1782) is arguably the first major British landscapist, but rather more notable for Italian scenes than Welsh ones, although he did paint several on visits from London. The Bard, 1774, by Thomas Jones
Sport The most popular sports in Wales are rugby union and football. Wales, like other constituent nations, enjoys independent representation in major world sporting events such as the FIFA World Cup, Rugby World Cup and in the Commonwealth Games (however as Great Britain in the Olympics).
