About Madrid

Spanish people are deemed to be the liveliest of the European bunch and when we talk about Madrid, the capital city of Spain, it is a riot of passion in every direction. Home to over 3.3 million people, Madrid is one of the most iconic cities of the world. It is full of sheer flattery with positive vibes emitted from every nook and corner. When it comes to acceptance, the city rakes in top spots. It doesn't matter where you are from. If you are in Madrid, you are from Madrid. This simplistic yet heart warming approach of the locals in an ever changing cruel world makes one fall in love with the city even more. What Madrid lacks in monumental structures like the Eiffel Tower of Paris and Colosseum of Rome, it makes up for with its rich Culture and Art. Madrid is a giant of a city when it comes to the biggest and best of Museums. Bestowed with the most famous works in its magnificent galleries, the city never fails to impress art aficionados. As old as the Spanish empire is, one can find numerous architectural wonders spread across Madrid. There is no other city which can claim to have a pedigree as pure as Madrid's when it comes to art. From home grown talents to international masters of the craft, ancient kings and emperors never failed to shower riches and praises on artists. Works of legendary artists like Picasso and Miró adorn the walls of art galleries throughout the city. Museo del Prado, Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza are the top tier museums and galleries in Madrid and regularly figure among the best in the world. These are good places to start your Madrid trip on an artistic note. Madrid is a multicultural Cosmopolitan with a bustling life. A lot of the most famous tourist attractions are located in the central portion of the city with Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, and Plaza de Colón as major hubs. Ancient structures like huge cathedrals,churches and other important buildings used by ruling monarchs coexist with the modern style of architecture. The city is surrounded by UNESCO World Heritage sites which make for a nice getaway. Madrid is known as king of nightlife amongst various cities in the world. It has probably the most number of pubs and bars of any city on Earth which is an indicator of its nightlife which is revered as stuff of legend by the tourists who have experienced it. The appeal of after dark Madrid is too much to resist and one feels swayed by the young crowds and action.

Local Culture - Madrid has had a long lineage of rich cultural history. Its heritage has been well preserved over time and managed to cope up with the modern lifestyle of people. Spaniards follow the practice of Siesta which is basically a mid day break to get away from the hot glistening sun and rest within the confines of their homes. The locals are extremely tolerant towards other cultures and people from all walks of life live in harmony in the city. Classic soap operas and flamenco performances form an integral part of cultural display in Madrid.

Dining - The city of Madrid has been constantly evolving and coming out of the traditional culinary shell of Spanish gastronomical affairs to imprint its own set of dishes on the world food map. Traditional Spanish dishes are widely served along with a plethora of local dishes like Gallinejas and Entresijos which are portions from different parts of lamb fried in its fat, Oreja de Cerdo which is pigs ears, fried in garlic and a popular dish of the region. Even though it is located in central Spain, the quality of seafood available in Madrid is surprisingly good, even better than that of coastal areas. But this quality comes at a price. Meat and meat products are also of exceptionally good quality. Eating in Madrid is an experience in itself full of pleasure

Things to Keep in Mind- Tourists looking for peaceful nights to sleep should look for accommodations not facing main streets as these tend to get noisy during late at night.
