Nitra is a city in western Slovakia, situated at the foot of Zobor Mountain in the valley of the river Nitra. With a population of 85,000, it is the fourth largest city in Slovakia. Nitra is also one of the oldest cities in Slovakia and the country's earliest political and cultural center. Nitra lies in the north temperate zone and has a continental climate with four distinct seasons. It is characterized by a significant variation between hot summers and cold, snowy winters. The city is located in the warmest and driest part of Slovakia.

Nitra is connected to Trnava and Bratislava by a fast expressway named the E58. There are also first-class road connections to Topoľčany, Zlaté Moravce - labelled as "Highway of Death", Vráble and Nové Zámky. A planned bypass in direction to Banská Bystrica is planned to be completed in 2010. The railway track from Nové Zámky/Šurany to Prievidza crosses the city, but it isn't one of the main tracks. There is a junction bit north of the town, connecting it with Leopoldov, Topoľčany and Radošina. Nitra has its own recreational airfield however the closest international airport is the Bratislava Airport.

Local public transport is based on buses with 30 lines, covering the whole city, as well as extending to the neighbouring municipalities of Lužianky, Nitrianske Hrnčiarovce, Štitáre, Ivanka pri Nitre and Branč.

After the Velvet Revolution of 1989 and dissolution of Czechoslovakia, Nitra became part of newly established Slovakia and became a seat of the Nitra Region in 1996.
