CITY BUILT ON WATER, WITH WALLS MADE OF FIRE
In 2019, we welcome you to Madrid, the capital of the Kingdom of Spain.
From the city walls of Moorish influence to the neoclassical architecture of the world-famous Museo del Prado to the modern skyscrapers of the Cuatros Torres, Madrid's wide variety of styles reflects the different periods in its vast history. As the only European capital of Muslim origin, Madrid's position as the third largest European city demonstrates the multiculturalism and international importance that it carries.
Madrid is not only a center of economic activity but also a wellspring of arts and culture, showcasing the legacy of prominent artists and writers such as Diego Velasquez, Francisco Goya, Salvador Dalí, and Miguel de Cervantes. Entertainment is omnipresent in the city—a collection of the vibrant nightlife and an intense fervor behind football creates an exciting environment that is enjoyed by all.
Having hosted an impressive repertoire of other prestigious international events—including WorldPride in 2017 and the upcoming UEFA Champion's League Final next year—Madrid promises to serve as the perfect location to host WorldMUN 2019.
