    Standing on the banks of the River Lagan, Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland. It was a major port and played an important role in the Industrial Revolution in Ireland. The city earned the nickname "Linenopolis" because it was the biggest linen-producer in the world during the early 19th century. It boasts the world's then largest shipyard, the Harland and Wolff shipyard, which built the legendary RMS Titanic. Every year several international students come to Belfast to study and many of them choose to stay as the city offers great career opportunities.
