Nitra was established on seven hills - Zobor, castle hill, Calvary, Čermáň, Borina, Vŕšok, and Martinský vrch. The origins of the Slovak past were written right here. Related to its name are the beginnings of Slovak history, names like Pribina, Saints Cyril and Methodius, mention of the first Catholic Church on our territory and the first officially established Slavic alphabet.
Its location in the middle of the local natural environment makes the city breathtakingly beautiful regardless of the season.
Majestic castle, sacral monuments, historical buildings and treasures of the past presented in the museums are all an inseparable part of the city. Today Nitra is the centre of agriculture, culture, religion and sports of the region, and thanks to the Agrokomplex Exhibition Centre also an international exposition hub. Nitra is also a city of the youth with two universities: University of Constantine the Philosopher and Slovak agricultural university.
