- UPDATE 85: Madrid -





Today we're visiting the capital of Spain - Madrid. This metropolis of 3 million residents is situated on a high plateau in the heart of the country and is well known for its temperate climate, elegant avenues, beautiful parks, and famous landmarks. There's plenty of attractions to see here - so let's take a close look at this beautiful capital city.

Our tour gets started off in the outskirts of Madrid where we'll be visiting the legendary El Escorial palace. This iconic landmark was originally constructed in the 16th century and has plenty of history - through the years it's served as a monastery, museum, library, pantheon, basilica, and most importantly the burial place of Spanish kings for nearly 600 years.





With favorable conditions much of the year, the arid landscapes surrounding Madrid are ideal for growing olives. Massive plantations can be seen for miles in the countryside.





We finally arrive in the heart of the city and our first stop is the impressive Palacio Real. The official residence of the Spanish Royal Family until 1931, it's the largest royal palace in all of Europe.





The towers of Puerte de Europa are one of the city's most distinctive sights and serve as symbolic gate into the city.





The Cuatro Torres Business Area (Spanish for "Four Towers Business Area") is home to a number of the country's tallest buildings.





Completed in 1953, Edificio España is one of the city's tallest and most iconic buildings. It's currently undergoing renovations and plans to open as a hotel next year.





Our tour concludes with a look down the city's Gran Via avenue - one of Madrid's most popular and famous tourist destinations.

Impressive job, very detailed and realistic (I can assure, as I am from Madrid  :thumbsup:).

Just a point. The "Palacio Real" (Royal Palace) is not the residence of the Kings of Spain. It is just used for official events and can be visited by the public throughout the year. The Royal Family resides at "Palacio de la Zarzuela" located in the outskirts of Madrid.

Anyway, amazing update.

ramrec: Appreciate the comment and kind words! Thanks for alerting me about the Palacio Real, oops :P Apparently it was the official residence until 1931, so I've updated the entry accordingly :thumbsup:

- UPDATE 87: The Balkans -





Today, we're taking a look at one of Europe's most beautiful and unique regions - The Balkans. From picturesque cities, villages, farmland, natural wonders, and more - this area is filled with sights that will take your breath away. We'll begin in one of the region's most important cities - the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, it's one of the continent's oldest cities and has a number of notable landmarks. Beogradanka (Belgrade Palace) is one of the city's most recognizable skyscrapers and rises high above the historic old town.





Entire districts of the city are filled with commie blocks - these huge, repetitive apartment buildings often dominate the landscape around them.





The Balkans are filled with picturesque farming villages for as far as the eye can see.





The Balkans are known for their natural beauty as well - the stunning waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park are particularly impressive.





Romania's Bran Castle is our next destination - this famed landmark is often associated with Dracula and many believed that he lived here at one point. Although there's little proof to support this - it could have been the home of Vlad the Impaler at one point.





As we make our way south, we finally get our first view of the Mediterranean Sea - and we'll be stopping in Greece's Ano Symi for the night. This picturesque seaside village is filled with colorful buildings and is gaining a reputation as one of the area's most beautiful destinations.





The tour concludes with a visit to one of the Mediterranean's most stunning destinations - Croatia's Dubrovnik. The walled old town was completed in the 16th century and is well known for its well preserved white stone buildings. With beautiful views of the Mediterranean from the city's riviera - any trip here is unforgettable.





Special thanks to manga rivotra for some of the road textures used in this update - much appreciated :)

Absolutely stunning work once again! Dubrovnik looks spectacular. I quite liked the commie blocks of Belgrade too.
I'll take a quiet life... A handshake of carbon monoxide.
