Located in the center of the country, the capital of Spain for over 500 years is still the country's hub of almost every aspect of life. The culture and history resonate through each neighborhood while modern infrastructure offers every convenience imaginable. The people are proud, spirited and very open-minded and attending the theater, museums and the ballet are part of the norm. Beautiful expansive parks abound as do elegant avenues, palaces and lively plazas. Bars, clubs and flamenco halls offer no shortage of nightlife opportunities. Remote workers have a good selection of cafes and coworking spaces to work from and given the city's size, it's not difficult to meet other people. The cost of living is slightly higher than other parts of Spain but it allows you to live in one of Europe's great cities.

Madrid is very walkable even though it is a big city, but using the metro is also quite easy and safe. Between walking and metro, I'm able to get anywhere in the city in a good amount of time.

It's simple - don't go to a night club before 1am! Anytime before 1am is too early and they will be empty.

Madrid is quite safe in general. The Madrileรฑos keep very late hours so the streets will be filled with people until the early hours of the morning. If you are the only one on the street though, just walk to a street with many people because there is always safety in numbers, all over the world.

If you like to exercise, Retiro Park is a great place for jogging. It's a beautiful gardens with a lake. It's also a good spot for a picnic with friends.

Be sure to go to La Bicicleta, it is a very cute cafe where you can work for hours. After that, get lost in those cute little streets, enjoy the architecture and stop in one of the small plazas for a drink or two. If you want other options you can try also Cafe de la Luz, Little Big Cafรฉ and Pum Pum Cafรฉ. Also thereโ€™s a place called Google Campus, which is like a giant cafรฉ where people can go and work for free.
