Belfast (Irish Béal Feirste meaning "The sandy ford the river mouth") is the capital of Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. It is the largest city in Northern Ireland and the province of Ulster, and the second largest city on the island of Ireland after Dublin. In the 2001 census population within city limits (Belfast Urban Area) was 276,459 inhabitants, while 579,554 people lived in the large metropolitan area of Belfast. This made it the fifteenth largest city in the United Kingdom, and the eleventh largest conurbation in the country. Belfast is located on the east coast of Northern Ireland. The city is flanked to the northwest by a series of hills, including Cavehill Hill, thought that inspired the novel by Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels. He imagined that it was shaped like a sleeping giant safeguarding the city. Belfast is also located west of Belfast Lough (Lake Belfast / Belfast Lough) and at the mouth of the River Lagan making it an ideal location for the shipbuilding industry ever made so famous. When the Titanic was built in Belfast in 1912, Harland and Wolff had the largest shipyard in the world. Originally a village in County Antrim, the town of Belfast was created when Belfast achieved city status by Queen Victoria in 1888. Belfast suffered the worst of the Conflict in Northern Ireland. However, since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, has been further modernization in the city. There are two airports in the city: Airport George Best Belfast City, adjacent to Belfast Lough and Belfast International Airport which is near Lough Neagh. The Queen's University is the most important city. The University of Ulster also has a campus in the city, where most studies of the fine arts and design.
