The city of Cardiff is the county town of the historic county of
Glamorgan (and later South Glamorgan). Cardiff is part of the
Eurocities network of the largest European cities. The Cardiff Urban
Area covers a slightly larger area outside of the county boundary,
and includes the towns of Dinas Powys and Penarth. A small town
until the early 19th century, its prominence as a major port for the
transport of coal following the arrival of industry in the region
contributed to its rise as a major city.
