Coimbra and the University of Coimbra are two interrelated realities. The epithet of "City of Students" is not new, but the connection between one of the national institutions with a longer tradition and the city of the river Mondego lives on.

The city and the surrounding region offer exceptional conditions for countless leisure activities, which range from the practice of several sports to numerous suggestions at cultural and artistic levels and to events in unique historical sceneries, just to mention some possibilities among many others.
