the metropolitan Capital of spain
Madrid, the main capital of spain and the third biggest city in Europe next to London and Berlin with over 3.5 million inhabitants.
Seriously this city is beautiful, with its old historical places to visit, parks where you can spend the entire days, cheap bars with great traditional dishes and many more. I travelled to Madrid almost several times and it’s a great place to spend some days, although for living and working its very stressfull and chaotic. Discover recommended places, bars, restaurants, hotels and sightseeing I recommend to go, when you visit or come back to Madrid one day.
