Apart from the language, I didn't feel like being a tourist at all. Madrid is a cosmopolitan city that combines the most modern infrastructures and the status as an economic and financial center. Even though, there are some historical places to visit – Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Cibeles.
Santiago Bernabeu Stadium is a top attraction to all football lovers. It has its museum which is fully dedicated to Real Madrid team. You can revise the club’s history, see the cups won by Real Madrid in the Trophy Rooms and walk on the pitch and experience the stadium atmosphere up close. Even as a girl, I found that experience very interesting.
