The city of Nitra is surrounded by the river of the same name and is located in the west of Slovakia. Bratislava is about an hour away by car.
🏰 As in any more or less self-respecting large Slovak city, Nitra has its own castle, many historical and architectural sights.
Nitra is considered the center of an industrial hub, formed at the start of the 2000s.
In the Nitra region, there are many factories of foreign companies from Japan, Germany, Austria, America, Taiwan, Japan 🌏 It is not surprising that there is usually no shortage of jobs in Nitra. The automotive, electronic and food industries are mainly represented.
The city is home to the Slovak Agricultural University – one of the most prestigious universities in the Slovak Republic. The university has a unique research center AgroBioTech. Therefore, Nitra is often called the agrarian center.
👨🎓 No less popular is the second educational institution – the University of Constantine the Philosopher. This university trains specialists in various fields – from teachers and journalists to IT professionals.
Agricultural fairs, art festivals, and various exhibitions are regularly held here. Every year tourists and locals are attracted by the classical guitar music festival. One of the city streets (Shtefanikov) generally turns into a fair market on Saturdays 🥒
In general, this is a relatively small (by our, not Slovak standards) town, quite well-groomed and pretty.
