Madrid has population of over three million. It is the third largest city in the European Union. It is a business centre where the financial role of banking plays a major key. It is the home of Spanish Parliament which makes Madrid the Political centre and the headquarters for the Public Administration and home of the Royal Family. It is also the place for intellectual, cultural, artistic activity and for lively nightlife.
The architecture of the buildings is related to the cities history. There are influences from the Austrians under the Hapsburgs, French Bourbons. The old power station has been converted to a contemporary design of Caixaforum Madrid with a dramatic vertical garden wall.
After three days in Madrid my memory is like living in the city but not living in the city. It is a compact city. It has many old historical beautifully designed buildings, impressive monuments, fountains, garden statues, churches, and wide avenues, street alleys with restaurants and Tapas bars. Churros diped in dark hot chocolate with great VT members, nice apartments for sale, Spanish roofs, I am hunting for Spanish flag to stick on my cap. Population of people with dark hair.
Madrid has a good metro subway system, fairly easy to find places and important tourist spot are close by. It is an easy and relaxing city. I think is a safe city and on that note I will visit Madrid again when I win a lottery as the Aussie dollar is no match for the Euro dollar.
