It is like the European version of New York City. The city never sleeps, people are out all day and night walking in the streets. Lights are everywhere. It’s a beautiful city to visit and party and learn new cultures.

It’s very good. Transport is so easy and accessible. And the prices are not that bad in my opinion.

How much does it cost to live in Madrid?

Transport is not that expensive as you can apply for a transport card that costs 20€ a month and you can use whenever for anything. Food and restaurants is a bit more pricey depending on where you eat but I’d give an estimate of 20-25€ for a full meal. Rent is a bit pricey if you’re living in the Centre of the city however you can get roommates easily.

No there’s a lot of websites that make it very easy to find a place to live. The best website in my opinion is idealista.

The food is very different they have all kinds of food from different cultures. My favorite is Seafood paella (spanish) and butter chicken (Indian)
