Alongside the sports events that will take place in Coimbra, student athletes will take part in multiple social events in the city, as well as enjoy cultural and educational activities with one of the oldest universities in the world. Whilst being on the UNESCO World Heritage list, the University of Coimbra brings a large population of students from around the world to Coimbra, which is why the city is renowned in Portugal as a student city.
