The city of Valencia is the capital of the autonomous community of the same name in Spain. With over 790,000 people, it is the third most populous city of Spain. The languages spoken in the city are Spanish and Valencian. Valencia is famous for the invention of a dish called Paella, and for celebrating a festival called Fallas Festival. During this festival, papier maché sculptures are displayed and burned.

The public transportation of Valencia consists of buses, bicycles, trams and the metro. The buses are owned by EMT.
