Girona is a city in the northeast of the Spain and capital of the province with the same name. The city itself has about 100,000 inhabitants. Located only about an hour from Barcelona, it makes for a great way to combine both cities and as there is a growing amount of flights it can be cheaper flying to Girona as well. The city is relatively small but has an attractive old town and some fascinating architecture, dating back to the old days as well some more art nouvea collections.
Girona has a typical Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers from June to September and relatively mild but wetter wintermonths from December to March. Average daytime summer temperatures are around 30 °C. Winters are a little colder compared to coastal cities like Barcelona though with temperatures at night around or close to zero.

The Girona - Costa Brava International Airport (international code: GRO) is located about 10 kilometers south of the city centre and is getting more and more popular as a start of a trip in the region as there are quite a few low-cost airlines serving the city. [[Ryanair serves dozens of cities in Europe, including London, Brussels and Rome. A few others include Jetairfly, Transavia and Star1.
To/from the airport
Trains to Barcelona leave regularly and take just over an hour. In the near future, Girona will be getting its share of high speed train services on the Madrid - Barcelona - Avignon (France) route.
Girona is near the main highways towards the coast, France and the south of Spain.
Buses connect Girona to many provincial towns, but for longer distances it's better to use cars, train and plane.

If you want to post a card, you can head to the post office (Correos). The Spanish post is not yet as efficient as colleagues in other countries so receiving a card can take a bit longer than the number of days that it should take. On the website of Correos, you can find the locations of nearby post offices.
Post offices are generally open from 8:30am to 2:00pm, although times can vary and the main post office usually is open until the early evening. Most will also open again on Saturday mornings, but in the smaller towns will close as early as 12 noon. When posting a letter, look for a yellow box and, if possible, post at the post office itself where there will also be divisions for local, national and international mail. Be prepared for long queues at the post office. This is why tobacco shops sell stamps and many will also have the facility to weigh packages.
Standard letters/postcards of up to 20 grams sent within Spain are €0.34. However, non-standard letters/postcards of up to 20g are €0.39. Letters/postcards of 20 to 50 grams are €0.45. In the case of international shipping, the price is €0.64 to most countries within Europe for standard envelopes (letters/postcards) up to 20g, for a few European countries and outside Europe it is €0.78.
