EuroLeague cities: Madrid, Spain

Madrid, one of Europe's grandest and most attractive old capitals, is a treat for the senses. From the renowned Prado art museum to the wide open spaces of the glorious Retiro park, from the ultra-fashionable shops around the main Gran Via boulevard to the old-world charm of the Plaza Mayor main square, Madrid truly has something for everyone. And, of course, there is also the small matter of Real Madrid, one of the most famous and revered sporting institutions in the world. The phenomenal success of the club – especially on the continental scene – is reflected in the fact that 'Los Blancos' are currently European champions in both basketball and football, the first time any club has held such an honor. Of course, Real Madrid is also the biggest collector of continental crowns in both sports, as well. Real Madrid's ambition and desire know no bounds, ensuring that this iconic organization – a marvelous symbol for a proud city – will continue to maintain its position at the top of the sporting world.
