One more city to add to the list is Madrid, Spain. The capital of Spain has much to offer to all of those who decides to visit this city. According to letsgo2.com, there are many places to visit for it is a very cultural city. Spain has many museums and historical architecture such as the Thyssen Borneimsza Museum, Museum of Fashion, Royal Palace, Conde Duque Centre, Reina Sofia Museum, and etc. All these places represents the city's best historical and some modern arts and buildings. Entertainment is another thing that does not lack in this city. Letsgo2.com has listed some of the fun that can be found there like all the daily live performances, flamenco bars and clubs, and obviously the traditional spanish bull fighting. I personally always wanted to see bull fighting live although it may end up bad sometimes. In Madrid, you can also visit the Madrid Zoo that contains 3000 animals that walk freely instead of being behind steel bars. There is also the Aquopolis, which is one of the largest water attractions in Europe offering fun for the whole family. If spanish food here is delicious, I only imagine how many times better it might be in Madrid, Spain. All dishes are known to be extremely good and I'd probably gain some weight if I ever went there. Spain is also a great place to shop in boutiques such as Serrano, Castello, Goya, Velazquez, and etc.
