Madrid is a cosmopolitan city and is the economic, financial, administrative heart of Spain. Today it has a large cultural and artistic heritage and a legacy of centuries of exciting history. Madrid is a dynamic, open society, high-spirited and friendly, making it one of the great capitals of the Western world.

Madrid has one of the most important historic centers of all the great European cities. Near the Plaza Mayor is the area known as the "aristocratic centre" where the jewel in the crown is the Royal Palace, an imposing building dating from the 17th century. Nearby is the Plaza de Oriente square, the Teatro Real opera house, and the modern cathedral of La Almudena. The Puerta del Sol square is surrounded by a varied and select area of shops and businesses, and the "Paseo del Arte" art route, world class museums, palaces and gardens.

Madrid's lively nightlife is another key attraction of Spain's capital, due to its variety and the exciting atmosphere to be found in its bars, pubs, clubs and flamenco halls. Madrid possibly has the largest number of bars per capita of any European city.

Popular festivities and the San Isidro bullfighting festival are regarded as being the most important in the world.

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
