Nowadays travel by an airplane is nothing special for most of the Polish tourists. Nothing surprising in that, cause we can pay for a plane lot- polish airlines even lower price then for a train for example. When we are arriving on the airport we only like to leave it immediately and start our holidays. However, some European airfields are worth to be seen a little bit closer.
Barajas Airport, Madrid
This is the biggest and the most beautiful airport in the entire Spain. The architecture of entire object is phenomenal, it is nice combination of a vintage and really high-tech style. One half on airport looks exactly like a deck of an old, luxury ship, with all the ornamentation and cozy elements. On the other hand we may admire beautiful and modern replica of a space ship, everything is new and almost sterile.
