Spain

Spain, one of the most attractive countries near the Mediterranean sea with some beautiful beaches and historical cities

Famous for its beaches, cities and history, Spain has it all. Located on the Mediterranean sea, the weather is good all year round around the coastline and therefore, it is a popular place for both the summer and a winter break. If you go further inland, there is a more seasonal climate. As Spain has played a large role throughout history as part of the Roman empire, Gothic Kingdom, Muslim Iberia and through medieval times, there are many relics from these eras such as many castles and other leftovers from the former rulers of Spain. Nowadays, Spain is one of the most popular destinations for tourism in Europe because of its beaches with many hotels and its lively cities which make this country one of the best places in Europe for a holiday. For some of the best cities you can visit BarcelonaMadridValencia or Granada. All are these are rich in architecture and have many sight to visit. Spanish culture is also laid back which makes a visit more enjoyable. Beaches are everywhere with the Costa Blanca, Costa Brava, Costa del Sol, Ibiza and Mallorca probably the most popular where hotels and resorts catering to tourists are in abundance. Compared to the northern cities of Europe there is much more to do outside such as bear gardens or just nice places to drink a cup of coffee. The food here is also great as the Spanish kitchen suits most people.
