Madrid - the capital of Spain is the third largest city in the European Union, after London and Berlin. Located in the heart of the peninsula and right in the center of the Castillian plain 646 meters above sea level, Madrid’s population is over three million. This cosmopolitan city is a business center, headquarters for the Public Administration, Government, Spanish Parliament and the home of the Spanish Royal Family. Madrid’s role in both the banking and industrial sectors are vital as well as its intense cultural and artistic expressions and a very lively nightlife.
While Madrid possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighborhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the Royal Palace of Madrid; the Teatro Real (Royal theatre) with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro park, founded in 1631; the 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives; an archaeological museum; and the Golden Triangle of Art, located along the Paseo del Prado and comprising three art museums: Prado Museum, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, housed in the renovated Villahermosa Palace.
