Wales may be part of the United Kingdom, but nevertheless it is an own country (some might even say a whole own world) and has its own language and flag. It lies in the western part of the island of Great Britain and is bordered by England to the east and the sea to the west. Wales is said to be a land of myths and legends and you can easily imagine where that comes from. The landscape is full of green hills with old castles on top - in fact Wales is the country with the most castles in whole Europe. But it is not only the land side, Wales also owns beautiful, widespread beaches.
