LIKE IT OR LIKE IT NOT BELFAST HAS A HISTORY...THE "TROUBLES" RAGED FOR THIRTY YEARS AND CLAIMED THREE THOUSAND LIVES. AT THE HEIGHT OF THE TROUBLES PROTESTANT AND CATHOLIC AREA'S BECAME NO GO ZONES. THE PEOPLE OF THESE AREAS PUT UP FLAGS AND PAINTED MURALS TO MARK OUT THEIR AREA.
TODAY MOST OF THOSE MURALS ARE STILL THERE TO BE SEEN, AND NOW FORM PART OF THE BELFAST TOUR BUS ROUTE. ANOTHER WAY OF SEEING THE MURALS IS BY BLACK TAXI, THE DRIVER WILL TAKE YOU AROUND SHOWING YOU MURALS FROM BOTH LOYALIST AND REPUBLICAN AREAS...SOME OF THEM REALLY ARE WORKS OF ART AND A LOT OF WORK HAS GONE IN TO THEIR CREATION.
BOTH BUS TOURS OF THE CITY AND BLACK TAXI MURAL TOURS CAN BE TAKEN FROM BELFAST CITY CENTRE.
