Madrid Diaries

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Hello, hello.

I went to Madrid last weekend and thought I'd write a quick recap of things to do and places to visit.
Let me start by saying that Madrid is a beautiful city with plenty of sights to see...


 We stayed at NH Madrid Nacional which is located near the Atocha Central Station and 5 minutes walk to Prado museum and the Botanical Garden. I recommend the hotel - excellent location and great rooms. 

Places to go:

Museo del Prado, Museo Reina Sofia, Santa Ana square, Royal Palace of Madrid, Plaza del Sol, Mercado de San Miguel (photo below), Plaza de Espana, the Botanical Garden (right by Prado), Buen Retiro Park, Plaza Mayor etc. All main sights are absolutely worth it. We also went to the zoo but that was not as exciting as we expected. If you want to see the two most awesome creatures there (the penguins and the pandas, obviously) see below.
