Our intern Robin left at the end of last month, but before going back home let left us some tips on places you SHOULD visit while in town.
1. Atlético de Madrid & Real Madrid stadiums
Because I am a really big fan of soccer, I definitely recommend you to visit one of the stadiums you can find in Madrid. If you have the opportunity to attend a match, either in the Atlético or the Real Madrid stadium, it is an experience you won’t forget anymore!
Also both soccer stadiums are easily accessible with the metro.
2. Teatro Kapital
If you like to party sometimes, a place you have to visit is Teatro Kapital. It is not like a normal club where you have one dance floor for example. The Teatro Kapital is provided with 7 levels of different music genres and an open roof where you can chill and drink in the open air.
3. Chocolatería San Ginés
This place is well known for their chocolate con churros (hot cocoa with churros). The nice thing about this chocolatería is that it is open 24/7. This means that, if you are done drinking in the club for example, you can go to San Ginés and eat churros at any time of the day.
4. Plaza Mayor
If you want to drink something outdoors, at a terrace, any time of the say, Plaza de Mayor is a really nice place to go. On holidays and special occasions, they decorate the whole place and it looks impressive. Sometimes they also have markets there, such as the Christmas market in winter season.
5. Parque del Retiro
If you like walking or going into a green environment, you definitely have to visit the Retiro Park. There are street artist, you can go in a small boat on the lake with some friends, drink or eat something at a terrace, practice sport in the park and many more! You will see people doing all kinds of stuff in this park. Summer is the perfect time to visit the Retiro park!!
