Madrid: European capital of trophies
For the Spanish-speaking part of the world, Madrid has long been a focal point. With so many cultures gathering in the capital, it never takes too long for people to feel at home. Just admit Mahou is the best beer this side of heaven and you will be gratefully accepted as a true Madridista. A badge to be worn with pride, for this city is home to the Prado Museum, many further important museums and palaces, the political headquarters of Spain and countless cervecerias where you might get some local ham with your caña (small beer glass). Oh, and football.
Just the world’s most succesful football team playing here, with Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu bang in the middle of the lively Chamartin neighbourhood. And then there’s Atletico, another powerhouse in world football, at home in their brand new arena on Madrid’s outskirts. Still not enough for your football fix? Oh well: there’s Rayo Vallecano as well. Whereas Real and Atletico matchdays draw more nationalities than are included in the United Nations, Rayo are the driving force of residential area Vallecas, where traditional Madrid still rules.
