Spain - moving around the country
Spain has a very long railway network measuring about 18 thousand kilometers. The main routes are laid through the capital, connecting it with the most remote parts of the country. Trains in Spain are divided into several types depending on the speed and level of comfort. Travelling in the old type budget trains is a lot cheaper but it does not offer much comfort. However, all the average trains are usually equipped with soft seats and air conditioning. There are luxury trains with first class wagons and fashionable restaurants inside. One of these is the “Andalus Express”. You can get a discount on a railway trip by purchasing in advance, return tickets. There is also, in Spain, a well-developed network of electric trains. This option is much more economical, compared to usual trains. In the cities, trains run every half hour.
