    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 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'm living in Madrid for 6 years now and I absolutely LOVE this city, and I still find new things to see or do. This city offers you a lot of everything. If you're planning on visiting you can easily stay for a week and you won't get bored. It is also perfect for nightlife lovers.
    If you're just staying for 2 days, I recommend a tour around Sol: Sol, Plaza Mayor, Mercado San Miguel, Opera, Catedral La Almudena, Palacio Real, Plaza España, Gran Vía, Callao, Metropolis, Cibeles, Puerta de Alcalá, Parque El Retiro, Museo El Prado and back to Sol. It's all very close so you can walk everywhere.
    If you have a bit more time: Train Station Atocha and Museo Reina Sofia or Thyssen, Templo de Debod, La Latina, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Plaza de Toros Las Ventas.
    Can't stand Madrid in the summer though, it get's way too hot, don't come on july nor august!

    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.

    Easy to navigate with their excellent subways, beautiful green space, lots of things to see and do (many of them free), very fun and friendly locals all combined to make this city at least of 4 star. Will return to see it it merits even more.

Description

Some Spaniards claim that Madrilenos look down on the rest of Spain. If they do, it’s not without reason. Boasting world-class art museums, two premier futbol teams, and the capital of Spain, Madrid truly is a phenomenal city. Major attractions include the “Golden Triangle of Art,” which contain famous works by Picasso, Dali, and Velazquez, the Parque del Buen Retiro, a park sometimes referred to ... read more
as the “lungs of Madrid,” the Royal Palace, and the Plaza Mayor. Although the Plaza isn’t the biggest in Spain (that title goes to the plaza in Salamanca), it certainly is the most famous, having held numerous events throughout history from Inquisition trials to more recent headline concerts. Madrid has a highly efficient metro system that allows visitors to move around the city quickly, providing visitors with a good way to see the sights. Visitors also enjoy visiting Santiago Bernabeu stadium to watch the world famous Real Madrid football squad take the field. Once the sun goes down, there is a multitude of things to do with the legendary Spanish nightlife at your fingertips. Food in Madrid is decidedly Spanish; that is, lots of jamon, bread, soup, fried fish, and potatoes. Hotels and hostels are abundant in Madrid, with some of the most famous lying in the Gran Via-Sol area of the city. Madrid is a bastion of Spanish tradition and culture, making it a fantastic place to visit.
