Groningen is a big city, in the North of The Netherlands. Groningen is 180 square kilometres big. The city has old buildings, with a mix of modern buildings and art. The Netherlands is famous for biking and Groningen is definitetly a bicycle city. There are many biking trails inside and outside the city.
The nightlife in the centre is partying till deep into the night. Groningen is a city with a lot of students, more than 50.000. That is why Groningen never stops partying. Groningen is just like Amsterdan, a big city with many students. There are two English schools in Groningen: International School Groningen and Groningse Schoolvereniging. Apart from international schools, Groningen has a lot of Dutch schools to offer.
Transportation is mostly by bike, bus or by foot in Groningen. Groningen has a beautiful train station to get you around the country. Keep in mind that Groningen is in the North of The Netherlands. It can be a far trip to Amsterdam, Rotterdam and other big cities. The province or county Groningen has a lot of calm and green places to live. The people outside the big city are mostly farmers.
Far away from the city, the Dutch government harvests gas from deep down the ground. There were small 'earthquakes' from winning this gas, that left small cracks in the walls some houses. The government has massively shrinked the project, so people would't be complaining anymore. Keep an eye where you are going to live in the province Groningen. The city Groningen has never experienced this, so do not worry if you are going to live in the city. You can find cows in the meadow, all sorts of birds and nice and quiet roads.
