After more than 10 years, since I was last here, Madrid made a totally new impression on me.
At that time people seemed to me seemed closed, uncommunicative and spoke only Spanish. I remember the huge dug up, dusty boulevards ... I didn´t like this city too much.
But everything is about emotions and this year, when I arrived to Madrid, I felt totally differently. Probably because now I am able to speak a little Spanish.
Madrid is relatively young, a huge city with 3 million people. You won´t find here many historic monuments but the public transport is here very good (metro has 10 routes) and everywhere something is happening, lively atmosphere is thrilling. Lots of parks, cozy coffee bars with sweet churros, tapas bars - you feel relaxed here. Galleries are definitely the biggest attraction. Indeed, apart from Don Quixote and caravels, who discovered America, is enrolled in world history mainly Spanish painting: Picasso, Dali, Goya, El Greco... Although I am a layman I was fascinated by biblical paintings of El Greco, Goya or horror-erotical paintings of Hieronymus Bosh in the gallery Prado. This gallery is great to visit and see for anyone.

I am a lover of big cities, and Madrid is one of my favourites. You can eat amazingly well (recommend trying Casa Lucio), and of course the typical "bocata de calamares" in Plaza Mayor. If you care about culture, there are many museums you can visit, and they are all really close from each other (Prado Museum is a must see). If not, walking through La Castellana will also delight you. The metro system works really well, and you can arrive everywhere with it (be careful with the kind of ticket you buy, you can get many discounts if you look closely). Of course is a really crowded city, but surely you'll enjoy it.
