As Spain´s capital city, Madrid offers the very best in entertainment and nightlife, along with an energy and capacity for fun that is hard to beat. Madrid´s nightlife is legendary and has something for everyone, from the fashionable rooftop bars to the mega-clubs that stay open until dawn. During the summer outdoor terraces spring up all over the city as its residents relax and enjoy the great Spanish weather. Madrid is also at the epicenter of the recent Spanish dining revolution, and is therefore the perfect place to sample both modern and traditional cuisine.
But having a good time in Madrid means more than just enjoying its nightlife. The many parks located throughout the city are also great for playing sport and escaping the summer heat – the Parque del Buen Retiro is situated in the center of the city and is famous for its wide walkways and beautiful ornamental lake.
