Madrid is a welcoming city full of contrasts and home to Europe's best nightlife, museums, outstanding cultural life (opera, live concerts, bullfights, theatre and cinemas), restaurants and hundreds of attractive destinations. A combination of styles, customs, food and accents enriches its culture.
