While Spain isn’t the world’s largest country (51st by area, to be precise), it is home to several nations, each with its own unique culture. Castilian, Catalan, Galician, Basque, Occitan, Asturian, Aragonese, Valencian — no, these aren’t dialects out of Tolkien, but languages spoken by people who are all called Spaniards. The climate in Spain is rather hot, typical of the Mediterranean. However, up north, thanks to the proximity of the Atlantic, summer is cooler and winters are rather wet. In the southeast, summer is dry and hot and winter is very short. It’s comfortable and warm on the Canary Islands throughout the year. A great thing about Spain for tourists is that you can combine beach vacations with an active and varied excursion programme able to fit any taste at any time of the year. And this means that one trip will hardly be enough.
Aeroflot offers regular air service to six cities in Spain: Barcelona (the flight takes 4h 20m), Madrid (5h), Málaga (5h 30m), Valencia (5h), Alicante (5h), and Tenerife (7h). Round-trip tickets are the most cost-effective option. The cheapest tickets to Spain sell out early, so we recommend booking in advance.
