Now, let’s read the text.
The sights of Cardiff and South Wales
Cardiff Castle is one of Wales’ leading attractions and a site of international
significance. Located within beautiful parklands at the heart of the capital, Cardiff
Castle’s walls and fairytale towers conceal 2,000 years of history.
First, in 3rd century it was the Roman Fort. Then Norman invaders builted the
original castle in the late 11th century on top of that Roman fort. But remains of the
Roman wall can be seen today. The Castle passed through the hands of many noble
families until in 1766, it passed to the Bute family. From 1866 the 3rd Marquess
employed the genius architect William Burges to transform the Castle lodgings. He
created gothic towers, luxurious interiors, rich with murals, stained glass, marble,
and wood carvings. Each room has its own special theme, including Mediterranean
gardens and Italian and Arabian decoration. Nowadays Cardiff Castle belongs to the
City of Cardiff.
The Animal Wall, alongside Cardiff Castle, is one of the most delightful and
photographed historic features in Cardiff. It was designed by architect William
Burges for the 3rd Marquess of Bute and is much-loved by the people of the city.
Caerphilly Castle is a medieval fortification in Caerphilly in South Wales.
Covering 30 acres (12.2ha), it is one of the greatest surviving castles in the medieval
Western world. It was a highpoint in medieval defensive architecture with its
massive gatehouses and water features. Caerphilly, being uncomfortable for a family
residence, eventually decayed, and stone was taken to build a nearby country house.
The Victorian Bute family coal money rescued and restored the castle.
National Museum Cardiff is situated in the heart of Cardiff. Today the
National Museum Cardiff houses Wales’s national art, natural history, archaeology
and geology collections, as well as major touring and temporary exhibitions. There’s
plenty to please your eye from Impressionist paintings to gigantic dinosaurs.There
you can see one of Europe’s best collections of Impressionist works, the world's
largest Leatherback Turtle and the huge skeleton of a Humpback Whale.
Sultan the Pit Pony is a massive 200 metre raised-earth sculpture in
Caerphilly, in South Wales. The sculpture is affectionately named Sultan” after a
well-loved pit pony that worked in the local mines. The sculpture itself is built out
of coal shale from those mines, as a reminder of an industrial past that changed
Britain, and the world, forever.
So, let’s discuss the text. Answer my questions (слайд 4):

2. What can you tell about the history of Cardiff Castle?
3. What is the Caerphilly Castle? Who did rescued it?
4. Where is National Museum Cardiff situated? What can you find there?
