The ancient city ruled by mighty kings and princes once in the past, is nowadays a centre of culture, economy and student life.
It lies (as Rome) on seven hills, on the west part of Slovakia, situated at the foot of Zobor Mountain in the valley of the river Nitra. With a population of about 85 thousand inhabitants, Nitra is the fifth largest city in Slovakia.
Its name is connected with the beginnings of the history of Slovakia. The first mention of Nitra dates back to the 9th Century. Very famous names of Nitra are Pribina, Svatopluk, Sts. Cyril and Methodius and there were mentions of the first Christian church on the territory of Slovakia here in Nitra and about the introduction of the old Slavonic alphabet. The city has the wealth of historic structures and natural beauty in the surroundings.
In Nitra, there are located two universities: Slovak University of Agriculture and the University of Constantinus the Philosopher.

Our ESN SUA section is the older one of the two sections present in Nitra. It was established in 2008 under the name ESN Uniag Nitra. In 2012 the section name has changed to ESN SUA Nitra. The section members have a good relationship with the University and the International Relations Office. The average number of our incoming Erasmus students is around 150 per year, and this number has been increasing during the last years. The main aim of our section is to provide help (under the Buddy system), organize social activities and create pleasant time for the incoming students during their mobility. During our existence we have organized a lot of trips and social events, which were successful and awarded by our Erasmus students. All members of ESN SUA Nitra are always ready to help. The most important for us is to feel the ESN SPIRIT.. :)
