English Teacher - Croatia
NIKA Foreign Language School
Contact Information: Mr. Zoran Loncaric
Start Date: October 1, 2002
Our family-owned language school, NIKA, is located in central Croatia, one
of Europe's newest countries and also one of its most beautiful. Perhaps
we're most famous for our gorgeous, unspoiled coast, and yet there's a lot
more here to see: lovely mountains, national parks and historic cities, such
as Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb.
The school is located in Krizevci, a small medieval town just east of the
capital Zagreb. This offers you the advantage of living in a relaxed,
peaceful town where you 'll be welcomed with hospitality, and at the same
time the big city is just an hour's train ride away. (You can see a picture
of Krizevci at www.krizevci.hr).
In addition, many interesting places outside Croatia are within easy reach
from Krizevci: Venice, Budapest, Sarajevo, Austria and Slovenia.
