Leeuwarden is the capital city of the Dutch province of Friesland. It is situated in the north of the country. With over 30,000 Dutch and international students at three universities, Leeuwarden is truly an international student town.

The town centre is lively with European department stores, theatres, movie theatres, friendly pubs, museums, sports clubs and nightclubs. Some of the most extensive recreational areas are only a bicycle ride away, offering opportunities for water and land sports, or a great place to relax. Activities may include canoeing and rowing on the canals or sailing and swimming in the many lakes and community pools.

Frequent local and regional bus services connect towns and villages in the surrounding areas. Fast, clean and punctual train services link Leeuwarden with Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, The Hague, Rotterdam, the rest of Holland and all of Europe.
