Madrid was my favorite city in Spain. It combines the best nightlife I've seen in Europe with absolutely incredible cultural exhibits. Night clubs, Picasso and really good cheese.

I never really looked at Madrid as a European "must".
It is not to be missed!
Immaculate, historical, great food and an even better nightlife.
I highly recommend!

Madrid was a short (2 day) stop on our way to Barcelona. I mainly wanted to go there because my favorite painting in the world is in the Prado, but I wound up REALLY loving this city and would love to go back for a longer stay.

Some travelers skip over Madrid, Spain's cosmopolitan capital city, but I found it refreshingly real and down-to-earth after visiting some of the country's more touristy destinations like the Costa del Sol and Barcelona. There are plenty of museums, art galleries and excellent traditional and modern restaurants to keep you busy for at least a few days, if not an entire week.

Pull a mixing bowl out of the cabinet and add beautiful architecture and sculptures, alluring parks that are like a endless abyss of tranquility, shopping for everyone from Skylar Grey to Bérénice Marlohe, addicting tapas and tinto del veranos, and a innovative subway system. Mix them all together and you have the wonderful blissful city of Madrid. Truly like no other city, Madrid is the sanctuary of stress relief: parks of good relaxation, plazas for good socialization, and food and drinks to make you smile in between taking bites and talking.

This city is super cosmopolitan, with easy peasy public transport. Definitely try to see some flamenco while you are there. The Prado is a world class art museum, not to be missed.

In recent years, Madrid Pride has become one of the biggest in Europe with an estimated 1.5 million participants. We’re the best economic stimulus package that country could ask for so grab your credit cards and spend those euros. Pride is July 3-7; info: http://www.orgullogaymadrid.com/
Insider tip: The gay section is known as Chueca, which is conveniently the center of Madrid. It’s convenient to most Gay Pride venues by subway so it’s the perfect place to base yourself.
Recommended venue: Check out Supermartxe at Fabrik, a party and venue that you mustn’t miss. You’ll see the hottest guys (and many hot women) from throughout Europe and from around the world. http://www.nighttours.com/madrid/gayguide/supermartxe.htmlRecommended for

Madrid is a compact capital city. That's not to say it doesn't seem like one - it's very stately - but it's considerably more walkable than London, Paris etc.
It's also very charming, with a more mature / less hedonistic atmosphere than that of Barcelona. Great architecture, great restaurants, lots of culture = well worth a trip.

With the Prado, the historic architecture and squares, the ham, the tappas and hot chocolate, the ham, and extensive pedestrian zones, Madrid is truly a top destination. Did I mention they have ham?
