Spanish phrasebook for every tourist and visitor!

Spain is, next to Italy, Greece and Portugal, the holiday center of Europe – the combination of hot and dry climate with a long coastline makes this country the perfect place for sunbathing, partying and water sports. What’s more, Spain has an extremely long history, and while traveling around the country, we can see monuments from many different cultures – the heritage of ancient Rome, medieval Muslim Andalusia, delicious baroque buildings, etc.

So it is also a perfect country for lovers of history and culture. In addition, even on lawns we come across plants that are extremely exotic to us: figs, prickly pears and olives. The same applies to animals – in Barcelona, ​​for example, we will see parrots.

In other words, there is something for everyone in Spain.

It will certainly be helpful, and the locals will look more favorably at the tourist who is trying. Below we present selected words and phrases that may be useful on vacation in Spain.
