Located at the heart of Iberia, Madrid is a large and modern city that continues to grow every day. With a population of 4 million people and rising, what Madrid lacks in architectural gems is more than made up for by its stunning collection of art and culture. Though Madrid does have pockets of architectural and historical sites, the real draw of the city are its museums, like the Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums. In addition to these heavyweights, there are dozens of palaces and boutique museums that also have great collections of art.
Perhaps the true draw of Madrid, however, lies in the culture and lifestyle cultivated by the locals. Relaxing and hanging out at a café or leisurely trips to the flea markets are favorite local pastimes, while parties, bars, and discos come alive in the evening. Soak up the incredible art collections of the city or simply do as the locals do. Whichever you choose to do, Madrid will definitely be one for the books.
