A place of ancient Celtic culture that was flourishing long before the English even existed. Much of the culture is long lost but there is wealth of mystery, richness, beauty and fame connected to Wales that most people have no idea about.
To look beyond the sheep jokes, daffodils and rugby and it is important to recognise it was one of the first literary cultures on Earth. Celtic way of life was overflowing with poetry and great legends some little known and some world famous and more often than not, very wrongly, attributed these days to England.
They lived, on the whole peacefully, believing in nature, song, literature, dance... basically life just being fun. It was actually one of the first nations where women were treated in many ways equally to men! They even lived at peace with the Romans after the Roman invasion into Britain developing a sophisticated, ahead of its time nation!
Unfortunately the English (at that point Normans, Germans, French) i.e. the Anglo Saxons came to Britain and ruined most of it.

Wales has so much to be remembered for, namely some of the greatest legends, such as that of King Arthur and his round table which yes, was Celtic (WELSH) legend - though it is thought much of the legends are based on true figures. Though nowadays people tend to think King Arthur was English when what he did was in fact fight the Anglo-Saxons, he was in fact half-Celtic, half Roman.
Wales has many other great stories, A welsh Indian tribe existed in America long before Columbus ever arrived, thus proving that the Welsh were in fact the first to sail to America. In fact on the American declaration of independance 13 of the 17 signatures are signed by Welsh men, and America was very nearly going to be a Welsh speaking country!
A land with stories of great people, Owain Glynd, Aneurin Bevan, Richard Burton, Dylan Thomas, David lloyd George, JPR Williams!, Roald Dahl... the list is endless...Many great singers, actors, artists and writers have come from the small country of Wales (can't forget Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Anthony Hopkins for modern legends, even Kylie who is half Welsh!)
Not to forget it is a country of great beauty, much of the countryside breathtaking but unseen by many.
It is a nation, of what i have seen, (and that is much!), of polite, kind, talented people. This is of course a generalisation but i do not know how Cardiff can be accused of being violent fans when England are world-renowned for the behaviour of their football fans!!
There is a national Eisteddfod each year bringing together talent from all over Wales, yet the contest is not publicised or known to many outside Wales... a great shame.
I could go on and on, Wales is far too over stereotyped and it is by people that have no idea about the truth at the core of this remarkable country.
WALES rules so do not knock it until you have been there (preferably further than the South East) and KNOW about its history!

A country which is actually quite good apart from the fact the Welsh won't shut up about the fact they think the world hates them.
1st Welsh person: "We're a minority don't ya know?"
2nd Welsh person: "I know. Everyone hates Wales."
1st Welsh person: "Lets continue to push people away by being very patriotic and making sure people know that we resent all strangers."

A small country of which half the people can't actually speak their own language or talk in a welsh accent, this may seem like a stereotype but it is pretty true.

Sadly though most people in Wales hate the English, when Welsh people are born it's told to them to hate the English, you can also see graffiti about it everywhere.

There are lots of mountains in Wales including Snowdon and Tyrfan, it's a good place to go for hiking and is also a good place for climbing (it has a mountain training center).

Unfortunately, there are sheep, EVERYWHERE. You have to watch where you put your feet to make sure you don't stand in sheep crap. And no, Welsh people don't shag them.

Wales is a good country, very nationalist though.
City in wales:

A country to the west of England.
Any Welshman will drink more than you, people say that they are all poofs and shag sheep, go say that in a pub in Cardiff.
Wales is a beautiful country with nice and friendly people.
I have a friend that comes from Wales

Wales is a small country to the southwest of the United Kingdom. Contrary to popular opinion, Mr Englishman, we do NOT make love to barnyard animals, call our children Gwyneth (At least spell it right if you're gonna insult us), we aren't full of homosexuals or gingers and we aren't clones. In fact, we'd like to carry on with our own lives without the constant nagging and bitching coming up from the annoying next door neighbours that God situated us with when we were created. Am I speaking/writing in words that are too sophisticated to understand? They're not hard. Wales is a country filled with great people, with great accents, a wonderful history and a beautiful language that has sadly been poached from and destroyed by English. It's the land of my fathers - and the land of my children's father, too.
When I move out, I'm gonna settle down somewhere in Wales. Why leave my own country?

A country in Great Britain, inhabited by the Welsh. Has Celtic origins, known for it's rain, damp, sheep and rain. The Welsh are well known for not really giving a shit, and have become well adapted to cope with the damp.
Fun fact, Wales had the highest sale ratings of waterproof clothing out of all of the European nations between 2003 and 2014.
Person 1: See that pissed bloke covered in rain, shagging that sheep?
His mate: Lemme guess, he's from Wales?
Person 1: Yeah, defo Welsh...
