The most important thing to consider is, most definitely, how small the city actually is. It secures the spot on all lists of biggest cities in my country, however, it isn’t very crowded and lacks in many aspects. A positive attribute is that you can make lots of connections, because it doesn’t have many people so you are bound to find somebody that knows an important figure in the industry you are interested in.

It has a spa, with mineral rich spring water which is used for treating rheumatic diseases and infertility in women. Its nightlife is quite rich, with many cafes and restaurants which serve national cuisine meals.

Someone visiting Niš should now that the people are welcoming, the parties are lively, and tradition is important to most Nišlije (those living in Niš).

Foreigners will not only have a good time meeting new friends, but also ‘living it up’ at one of the many parties that take place every Friday.

It is a beautiful city. Someone coming for the first time, should consider trying our traditional food, which is very good. Also, our famous monuments, such as Fortress and more, should be visited. People are great and there wouldn’t be any adjustment problems, regarding socialization. I recommend living in this city to everyone.
