Why did you choose to go to Córdoba, Spain?

I chose Cordoba because I wanted to experience sunny and warm Spain. I was also attracted by the easy access to the sea and good link between the most attractive cities in the south of Spain. Cordoba is also an economical city for students. It was perfect for me as I didn't have to spend too much money on living there.

What is the student lifestyle like in Córdoba?

The student life in Cordoba is great. As I arrived there, I have been already invited for barbecue by Spanish students from my university group. There are a lot of cultural events for students happening in Cordoba in different bars, clubs and in the open air. Spanish students usually go out just at the weekends but Erasmus people are having party also during the week.

Would you recommend the city and the University of Córdoba to other students?

I would strongly recommend Cordoba as a place to live for students but the University of Cordoba has a very different system of education from the UK where I have studied before. The teachers were generally professional and friendly but also very demanding and traditional. The university staff at the reception were helpful but slow in service at times. The university organized some events and trips for Erasmus students which was quite nice.

What is the food like?

I love Spanish food especially in Cordoba. There are a lot of tapas bars and restaurants worth visiting. The best places are busy every night. Spanish tortilla and paella are one of the best Spanish dishes. I also enjoyed typical Spanish breakfast with fresh bread and orange juice. Generally, Spain has to offer a wide variety of delicious dishes and drinks. The food is quite natural and healthy.


Did it cost you to find your accommodation in Córdoba?

Before I found accommodation suitable for me, I spent a few nights in the hostel. It was in a reasonable price. There are a lot of cheap hostels in Cordoba for Erasmus students.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

The language was very easy to pick up for me. The university didn't inform me about any language course available.

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Córdoba from your city?

The best option to get to Cordoba from Kraków in Poland is to get a plane to one of the Spanish cities close to Cordoba and then get a bus or train there.

Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Córdoba?

I would strongly recommend Banagher Irish Pub and Long Rock. There were most of the parties for Erasmus students when I was there. The Cuban bar opposite to the Irish pub is also worth seeing.

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Córdoba?

Moriles in Ciudad Jardin is one of the best restaurants with good food in a cheap price.

What good cultural sites are there to visit?

It's worthy to visit Mezquita and Puente Romano. Jardines Botanicos are also a great attraction if you go there in the springtime.
