Capital of Spain and its largest city, Madrid is also the third-largest city in the European Union, after London and Berlin. The city has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighborhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the Royal Palace of Madrid, the Royal Theatre with its restored Opera House, the BuenRetiro Park, the 19th century National Library building and the Golden Triangle of Art Museums:the Prado, the Reina Sofía, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza. Cibeles Palace and Fountain have become the symbols of the city but perhaps the most striking feature of Madrid is the tremendous number of outdoor sculptures, belonging to a wide array of traditions, periods and styles.
