Madrid travel tips

1) Don't be surprised if you see people sitting on the floor at Madrid metro stations and in carriages

In Madrid, not only homeless people sit on the floor, but also completely ordinary Spaniards. Especially often, you can meet people sitting on the floor at metro stations or in carriages.

2) Take a lake boat ride in El Retiro Park in central Madrid

El Retiro, in the centre of Madrid, is one of the most beautiful parks in Europe with a special atmosphere. There is a boat rental station in the park, where you can ride on a small lake, in the middle of which there is a monument to King Alfonso XII. Palacio de Cristal is also located in the park. It is a crystal palace in which the Reina de Sofía Museum holds exhibitions and installations.

3) If you want to spend an evening like a Madrid local, go on a binge in several bars

It is in the spirit of the Spanish tradition to party at several bars during one night. The evening usually starts with tapas and an aperitif in one place and continues with dinner in another. Many people go to bars and clubs to drink cocktails around 01:00. On weekends, the centre of Madrid does not sleep until at least 04:00-05:00.
