Royal Palace of Madrid & Stylish Travel Outfit

Oh the gloomy weather after moving from Barcelona to Madrid. The complicated and empty looks of the city contrasted with Barcelona and was quite a shame. I thought that the best part of the trip to Spain would be Madrid however I was disappointed when I arrived at Sol Square. Sol Square was filled with riots, tourists, pickpockets, and hippies. It was chaos on earth.

However, there was a place that blew all my disappointments away. It was the most famous tourist spot in Madrid, The Palacio Real.
The Madrid palace built between the 18th and 19th century was filled with banquet halls and rooms with luxurious and fancy decorations. It definitely showed the power and dignity of Spain’s history as the strongest kingdom in the world. Within all its shining glory, there was dignity and formality that I couldn't take my eyes off. It was simply beautiful. I hope you never miss this place if you go to Madrid. I definitely recommend it!

How to find Madrid Palace
When you arrive at Opera metro station (Red line, L2 or Green Line L5), you can see the palace from far away. It takes about five minutes from the metro to the entrance of the palace. There is a beautiful garden and park near the palace so it is a great walk.
>> It was about 10 minutes by foot from the hotel Rekay stayed at, which was DEAR HOTEL (Spain Square station).

Palace Opening hours:
October~March>> Monday~Sunday 10:00~18:00 (Until 16:00 on Sundays)
April~September>> Monday~Sunday 10:00~2:00 (Until 16:00 on Sundays)

Palace Ticket prices
Children under the age of 5 can enter for free.
Ordinary tour>> 11 Euros
Guided tour>> 15 Euros

 More than anything, you will be charmed by the square in front of the grand palace rather than the interior of the palace. I was mesmerized by the perfectly grand kingdom and was grateful that I could witness it myself. Especially the arched columns that surrounded the palace were like a beautiful painting with amazing blue skies and greenery. I would never be able to forget that picturesque scene.

Madrid Palace is divided into ordinary and guided tours. However, there are explanations everywhere in the palace so it was not that inconvenient. It was rather great that I could look around here and there freely. Of course, I would have been able to understand more with detailed explanations however seeing and feeling the palace was enough for me.

Except in the blazing summer months, Madrid is known to have cloudy weather. I tried a casual travel look with a light and warm knit cardigan for the chilly weather. When you’re travelling, convenient and active looks are key. However, if you want great photos and enjoy the spot, you shouldn't miss out on style.

Rekay wore basic white t-shirt and black skinny jeans and added a neutral gray knit cardigan as well as colorful top shop stripe scarf as my point accessory upon the basic casual look. It is not only fancy with its maxi length but it did its role perfectly to make the overall look a bit more bright and cute in photos.

When you’re travelling, it is great to lightly match accessories with color and opint upon basic looks to easily make a photogenic look. Scarfs or mufflers with fancy patterns (HERE & HERE), color mini bag, or vivid colored sneakers or socks are great eye catching items to try out although they are small.

Lastly, Gucci’s Dionysus bag. I usually wore it in a casual feeling but it also goes pretty well with casual looks. One of the bags that you must beware of in trips is a backpack. Especially in Europe where pickpockets are dangerous, a basic cross-bag is better than backpacks or large shoulder big bags. Wearing it inside your outer is also a great tip.
