The students also have a positive impact on the city's nightlife, which is known for its party atmosphere. In addition to this source of income, the economy of Valladolid depends to a large extent on its industry. Trade is also very important, for instance in the wine that is produced near Valladolid. On top of all this, Valladolid is the capital of the Autonomia de Castilla y Leon, a (semi) autonomous region of Spain. Finally, the city also attracts tourists. The modernization and industrialization have not wiped out the legacy of the past.

Traffic and Parking
In Valladolid itself there is nothing special to report about the traffic and parking situation. There is no real peak season, during the summer there is more tourism, but less commerce and student activity. Winters can be pretty harsh, which means that it can be slippery to drive.
Generally speaking it is not hard to find a hotel room in Valladolid. However, we do recommend booking in advance, because sometimes hotel rooms may be scarce due to certain (commercial) events.
