St Mary street is one of the main streets of central Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. It is one of the main hubs of clubs and pubs in the city. The street is closed for cars on weekend nights and is the main scene of the city nightlife. Everything takes place in public - from drinking, fighting, kissing to crying and sleeping.
