i am 19 this year, and im currently in paris on a student exchange program. thats for sure that i will be travelling around, and i am very interested in traveling to madrid, but was wondering how safe is it for just me (a girl) to travel around. please advise!
thank you so much!
No need to worry about travelling to Madrid on your own. I lived there for six months and didn't find it more unsafe than any other big European city (e.g. Paris). Just be careful with your valuables at all times (there are a lot of pickpockets unfortunately) and use common sense like you would at home. Besides that I'm sure you'll meet other travellers at a hostel and won't be alone anyway . Have fun in Madrid, it's a great city!
i went there for 4 days, alone, in a random hostel, and ws fine, never felt unsafe at all!
I had to walk past street of prostitutes to get to my hostel, I still felt safe! Aside from there it's quite a clean city really
