All students choosing to follow Spanish courses in Madrid will find a wealth of cultural activities, historical sights, entertainment and beauty. The capital city of Spain is immense, with over three million people calling Madrid home; there is something for everyone in this magnificent part of Spain.
Many of the Spanish courses in Madrid include day trips to various parts of the city and surrounding areas as a way to immerse students in the culture. Some of the sights usually included on the trips are the Palacio de Cristal, the Parque del Buen Retiro, the Plaza Mayor and the Palacio Real, or Royal Palace. The Plaza Mayor is the main square, and is home to art museums, galleries, exclusive shops and boutiques as well as restaurants and cafes.
Other attractions on the list of places to visit while following Spanish courses in Madrid are the Prado Museum and the Botanical Gardens, next door to each other. The museum is perfect for spending a quiet afternoon or evening strolling through and looking at the various displays, while the Botanical Gardens are world-famous and have over 30,000 types of trees and plants on display from around the world. Located beside the Manzanares River, the Casa de Campo park is a lush area to spend the day. The park contains a zoo, a large man-made lake and an amusement park.
While you're attending your Spanish courses in Madrid, you'll have to get used to a different timetable - the custom is to eat much later than in many Western countries. Many of the finer restaurants, and there are literally thousands in Madrid, do not open for evening meals until eight at the very earliest, and most of them not until nine o’clock at night. Entertainment, including dancing, nightclubs, theatre, opera or even cinema performances, does not start until later than that. Most people in Madrid stop in at one of the wonderful tapas bars after work for a quick snack before the evening meal. The cultural aspects of this city make it one of the most exciting to visit in Europe. Once you've visited the city - and taken any of the available Spanish courses in Madrid - you'll want to return again and again.
