Travel tips for Spain
  • Instead of a passport, we strongly advise (and this is recognized by the Spanish police) to carry a photocopy (pages with a photo and a visa), which is desirable to certify with a hotel stamp. If the police need the original (which is highly unlikely), they will find a way to escort you to your hotel. But you do not have to go to the police for a certificate of the theft of a passport.

  • The statistics of the Spanish National Police in Catalonia show that in Barcelona the most dangerous for tourists are the areas of the Rambla and the Gothic Quarter (63% of crimes), Sagrada Familia and Paseo de Gracia (8%), Park Güell (8%) and the airport.

  • Avoid walking on the sidewalk directly along the carriageway, especially in the same direction as traffic. The most common robbery technique in Spain is the “tiron”: a motorcyclist on the go snatches a bag from a passerby.

  • When you check in, hotel employees may ask you for an identity card (passport) and write out the data necessary for registration from it, but under no pretext have the right to detain your documents.

  • If you are staying in a hotel in Spain, it is more economical to make phone calls from street booths or call centers. Hotels have the right to set mark-ups for telephone calls and are happy to use this right.

  • It is forbidden to take pictures at military bases, in the areas of military ports, police, military and government employees. If you want to take pictures of locals, ask permission first.

  • If you decide to have a bite or something to drink in an unfamiliar city, do not rush to go to the first bar or restaurant that comes across. If there are no visitors at all, this is a clear sign that something is not quite right with the institution, and it is not popular with local residents. Possible reasons are food and drink fraud, hygiene problems, uncleanliness in settlements with visitors.

  • In a restaurant, you should round up the amount and add 5-10% to the waiter. The maid should be tipped the day after arrival, a few days later and before departure.

  • Having arrived for a short time in a major Spanish city (Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Valencia), it is better to travel around it by public transport than by your own car or taxi. You will be able to spend more time seeing the sights of the city than in traffic jams. It is best to use the metro – this will allow you to be as close as possible to the purpose of your trip. If you intend to travel to several places, it is better to buy a ticket for 10 trips – each trip will cost you almost half the price. You can use a ticket for 10 trips not only on the metro, but also on buses. Approximately the same applies to urban transport in other major Spanish cities.

  • If a highway patrol stops you and asks you to take an alcohol test, never refuse the test, whether you have been drinking or not. Even if the test shows that the alcohol limit is exceeded, in the worst case, you will be subject to administrative punishment. Refusal to check is a criminal act with all the ensuing consequences.

  • Do not try to find public toilets in Spanish cities, they are practically non-existent, except perhaps at train stations and bus stations. Feel free to go to the nearest bar or restaurant. If there are several visitors in the institution, calmly go deeper into the room and look for the treasured door. If there are practically no visitors, you may have to order something first – a cup of coffee, a glass of beer or a soft drink.

Tips for traveling by car (especially with non-Spanish license plates!)
  • Never leave anything visible in a parked car, even for five minutes. Leaving the car, say, at a gas station, be sure to remove the keys from the ignition. Keep the trunk locked. Do not park in dark and deserted places.

  • Classical Barcelona “recipe”. If you find a puncture, and even more so a cut in the wheel of your car, be prepared that people will immediately appear who are eager to help you. In fact, a tire puncture in Spain is an extremely rare occurrence. Beware of becoming an object of staging: this is a common way in the bustle to deprive you of things and documents from an open trunk or cabin.

  • Another trick, especially if you are alone in the car: at a traffic light, the car following you slightly hits your bumper. Naturally, you get out of the car in your hearts to sort things out: (see the previous scenario).

  • More daring scheme. Your car can be caught up on the highway, anxious gestures to urge you to stop, or even simply cut and pressed to the side of the road. Then these “well-wishers” will pretend that they have noticed a terrible malfunction in you, they will lure you out of the car, inviting you to look back, under the car, etc. We strongly advise you not to leave the car. Close all buttons immediately, memorize the number of these benefactors, and pretend to call someone on a cell phone. They usually leave quickly…

  • Also be careful of people asking for help on the road under the pretext of a malfunction in their car. Willingness to help can cost you your own car if you gape.

Useful tips for those who are going to travel to Spain.

Sunny beaches, beautiful architecture and delicious Mediterranean cuisine is is not all that Spain has to offer travelers. And to make the trip easy and pleasant, our tips will help you.

When to go to Spain

Bad weather can spoil even the most thoughtful holiday, so if you don’t want to constantly worry about this, the best time to travel is from March to June and from September to December. At this time, the weather in Spain is as comfortable as possible, without sudden changes in temperature and heavy rainfall, and besides, there are not so many tourists yet (also, you see, a big plus!).

Another thing if you want sun, beaches and parties. Then the ideal time would be, of course, summer. A maximum of sunny days and a warm sea are an ideal option to appreciate the rest on the coast and the islands. But still, we advise you to refrain from traveling to the central and northern parts of Spain, since at this time it is very stuffy here.

And it is during the summer months in many regions of Spain that all kinds of local holidays and festivals are held, for example, the famous San Fermin in Pamplona, ​​which is celebrated on July 7, and Tomatina in Bunyol on July 29August.

Free Spain

When planning a trip to Spain, it is not necessary to plan an exorbitant entertainment budget. In this sunny country, you can safely do a lot of interesting things without paying a cent.

  • For example, get to know Spanish cities during a free tour. So, in Madrid daily free tours are organized by Sandemans, and everyone can sign up for them. To do this, you need to fill out a form on the organization’s website in advance or just go to the meeting place of the group 10-15 minutes before the start. Tours are held daily at 10:00, 11:00, 12:00 and 14:00 and last 2. 5–3 hours. The meeting point is Plaza Mayor, in front of the tourist information office (near the Sol metro station). They speak in English and Spanish.
  • Another free guided tour in Madrid by guides from the Way Hostel Madrid. The group gathers daily at 11:30 at the door of the hostel and sets out to explore the city. For everything about everything – about three hours.

For those who like to stretch not only their legs, but also the brain, excursions of a different plan are suitable, since there are enough museums in Spain that you can visit absolutely free of charge.

  • Prado Museum Madrid

Free admission Monday to Saturday from 18:00 to 20:00 and Sunday and public holidays from 17:00 to 19:00.

  • Reina Sofia Museum

Lovers and connoisseurs of contemporary art, such as Salvador Dali, Miro and Picasso[BT1] will definitely like it here. Free admission is on Mondays from 19:00 to 21:00, from Wednesday to Saturday from 19:00 to 21:00 and on Sunday from 13:30 to 19:00.

April 18th, May 18th, October 12th and December 6th – admission is free all day.

You can find out the exact opening hours of the museum and all the latest information on the official website.

  • Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

If you are a fan of Van Gogh, Caravaggio, Rubens or Rembrandt, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum is your choice. You can visit the exposition free of charge on Mondays from 12:00 to 16:00.

Keeps up with the capital and Barcelona:

  • Free tours from Sandemans Tours will introduce you to the city and its history, show you all the famous sights – from historical to modern – and leave a lot of pleasant impressions. Tours run daily at 10:00, 11:00 and 14:00. The group gathers in the Plaça de l’Àngel park (Jaume I metro station, in front of the Suizo hotel).
  • Feel Free also offers tourists a free introduction to the city. You can, for example, go to explore the Old Town or get to know the era of modernism in the history of Barcelona. And from June 1 to September 15, there are guided tours of the famous Gracia district, which end with a walk in Parc Güell. The duration of the tour is 2-3 hours.
  • If for some reason you didn’t make it to the previous city “bridesmaids”, don’t be upset. Runner Bean Walking Tours also offers two types of free tours – in the old city and in the “places of glory” of the great Catalan genius Gaudí. The schedule is as follows: from April 1 to October 14 daily at 11:00 and 16:30; from October 15 to March 31 daily at 11:00.

After seeing the beauties of the city and walking up, you can continue the cultural program in one of the museums. Many “temples of art” in Barcelona are free to visit after 3:00 pm and on the first Sunday of the month (for example, the National Museum of Art of Catalonia, the Barcelona History Museum, the Frederic Mares Museum and the Music Museum).

Also in some museums free admission on additional days – February 12, May 18 and September 11 and 24 (Museum of the History of Catalonia, National Art Museum of Catalonia, Museum of Natural Sciences Blau, Picasso Museum, Center for Contemporary Culture).

In Valencia you can also experience beauty and learn for free at the Ethnological Museum (free admission every Saturday, Sunday and public holidays), Valencia Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Natural Sciences (from 15:00 to 19:00) and the Museum of Ceramics (free entry on weekends).

The José Benliure House Museum, the Rice Museum, IVAM (Institute of Modern Art of Valencia), the Valencian History Museum, the Civic Museum, the Cervelho Palace Museum and the Fallas Museum also offer free admission on Sundays and public holidays.

Alicante will not let you get bored either, because the city has enough museums open to visit for free at any day and time.

  • Fogheras Museum, dedicated to the Bonfires of San Juan, when on the night of June 25 colorful papier-mâché figures are traditionally burned in Alicante. The museum presents models of various figures, outfits of citizens and many other interesting exhibits.

The schedule can be found on the official website of the museum.

Spain City Pass

Spain can be greatly facilitated (and financially too) by acquiring
tourist card, also known as City Pass. It is available in many cities in Spain, for example,
in Madrid, Barcelona,
Bilbao and
Leone, Seville, Granada and
as well as Valencia, Zaragoza
and others.

The card can be

agencies. With it, you are provided with discounts when visiting attractions and
museums, as well as excursions and concerts, plus discounts on transport and
shopping in stores.

cards, but on average it is €10–60.

Note: if
you buy a card via the Internet, it is sent by mail, or you receive
code by which it can be picked up at certain points of information (in
airports, railway stations or tourist information offices).


  • Mobile
    communications and Internet

One of the key
moments in the journey – connection. It’s good if your operator supports the service
roaming – then
you will automatically connect to one of the local networks (Vodafone, Movistar,
Orange or others).

If you
plan to make a lot of calls, you should consider purchasing a prepaid
SIM cards with a suitable tariff. She will let you dial a toll-free number and
PIN code with subscriber number, call other countries at a better rate.
And, of course, do not forget about such achievements of civilization as Viber or Skype.

If you need

Wi-Fi is available not only at airports and train stations, but also in cafes, restaurants,
parks, museums (the password for connecting can always be checked with employees

In addition, in
Spain has a 4G network with a wide coverage area, so do not
remember to check the conditions and rates with your mobile provider.

  • How to call from/to Spain

to call Spain from abroad, you need to dial +34 (Spain code) and then
9 digit phone number.

To call from
Spain to any other country you need to dial 00, then the country code, area code and
phone number.

For calls
within Spain, the number is dialed without any codes. Phone numbers are made up of
9 digits – regardless of whether it is a mobile or landline phone.

not worth doing in spain

Spain is essentially a calm and safe country for tourists. But, as in any unfamiliar place, in Spanish cities (especially large ones) you should at first follow simple rules so that your vacation is not overshadowed by some unpleasant incident.

  • Do not carry large sums of cash with you

In Spain, unfortunately, it is not uncommon for such motorcycle thieves to rip off passers-by’s handbags at full speed. Therefore, it is wiser to take only as much money with you as you plan to spend, and keep it in the inside pocket of your clothes, and not in your purse. And the rest of the amount (as well as bank cards and valuables) should be kept in the hotel safe. And try not to get too close to the edge of the sidewalk.

  • Do not leave documents with the hotel/hotel administration

When you check into the hotel, you may be asked for a passport or any other identification card in order to write out the necessary data for registration. But hotel employees do not have the right to detain your documents under any pretext.

  • Do not take pictures without permission

Naturally, being in a new country you immediately want to capture almost everything that you see on camera. But, being in Spain, remember that there are some prohibitions. For example, photography is prohibited in the areas of military ports and military bases, shooting of military and government employees, as well as police officers. If there is a desire to photograph local residents, then in order to avoid misunderstandings, it is better to ask their permission.

  • Choose the right place for a snack

Everything is very clear here: you should not go to the first restaurant or bar you come across without first making sure that there are visitors at all. In general, local residents in such a situation are better than any litmus test: if you see locals at the tables, feel free to come in. If the establishment is empty, this is a sign that, most likely, not everything is in order with it (for example, hygiene problems, poor-quality products, or fraud when paying customers).
