Dijon, capital of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, welcomes approximately 32,000 students each year. Classified as the third largest student city in France, Dijon offers the possibility of carrying out various activities. Renowned for its numerous sports facilities, you can also enjoy a weekend to get lost in its pedestrian streets, between medieval houses, churches and private hostels of the Renaissance mansions. The “Place of Freedom”, the “Palace of the Dukes of Bourgogne” or the church of “Notre-Dame of Dijon” are some places you will not be able to miss. If you want to find lively bars, take a break at Berbisey street, famous for being the meeting place for students. Enjoy your stay by tasting the many gastronomic specialties: Bourgogne snails, boeuf bourguignon and truffle of Bourgogne will be on the menu in the restaurants! Finally, for a leisurely stroll, visit the “gardens of the Arquebuse” and the “Parc de la Colombiere”, then relax on the shores of lake Kir.
