Where giants were born

Belfast. Birthplace of a giant, hailed as unsinkable…
The Titanic, of course.
In the shipyard where she and her sister ship, the Olympic, were built, a beautiful iceberg of a building now houses a very, very interesting exhibition about how the Titanic was built, and her fateful maiden voyage.

The Titanic Belfast building (the same height as the Titanic from waterline to deck… )

In the very spot where Titanic was built, you can now see her outline – and where the few lifeboats on board were located. This is one of them.
