Madrid is known for its art museums and its nightlife. It is a large, modern city with lovely parks, a fantastic Royal Palace, a Museum on the Americas, the Prado and an Egyptian temple.
Madrid is a city of activity and peaceful walks. During the day the city bustles with energy, but come evening the central city becomes a frenzy of human activity as Madridians take their nightly excursions. Around the Puerta del Sol the streets become packed with people until well into the early morning.
