Belfast is a city with a colorful political history that has been split between the Loyalists and Nationalists. Although “the troubles” have mainly subsided, there are still many signs of the past strife throughout the city. The street art  is spread throughout the city and are combination of Nationalist, Loyalist and Cultural murals, and the majority have politically infused messages. It’s great to walk around and absorb the art or take a black taxi tour to get even more information on the meaning behind the murals!
