Madrid is the capital of Spain and resides in the heart of the country, and the Atlantic Ocean washes its coasts. The city has famous natural attractions like Guadarrama mountain range and the Manzanares River.

January is the chilliest month, when the temperature reaches 5.5°C, and the boiling period starts in May and ends in July. Then the temperature fluctuates between 20-32°C.
