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.

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.
