Spain - moving around the country
In every major city of Spain, there are bus stations which are the departure point for traveling to the most remote provinces and resorts. On average, the intervals of routes around the city are about 15 minutes, while intercity trips run every 40 minutes. Some bus trips take to the line even at night. On the other hand, the number of trips is significantly reduced on holidays and on weekends. You can pay for your fare directly in the bus, but it will be a little more economical to purchase a travel card for 10 trips. This card however must be punched. For tourists, there are special sightseeing buses in the cities that allow you to visit all the most famous and historically important places of the city in one day. If the long-distance journey by bus seems too long and uncomfortable, you can use air transport. The country has an extremely developed internal air communication, and there is an airport on the outskirts of every major city. The cost of tickets for domestic flights is quite cheap.
Nature and parks of Spain
The Canary Islands boast another national park, Garajonay. It preserves moist laurel forests, which covered the whole of Europe in ancient times. One of the best natural reserves is the National Park of the Cabrera Archipelago. More than 80% of its territory falls on the water surface. The archipelago is located away from the mainland. It's uninhabited, due to which its flora and fauna practically did not change. It's prohibited to sail there. Tourists are given a license to visit, which is active during 1 day only. Colonies of seagulls live in the archipelago; dolphins inhabit the water around isles. Tourists will also be able to visit the fortress built in the 14th century, a museum, and a souvenir shop.
