Living in Tunisia
Tunisia is a beautiful country located in the Maghreb region of North Africa, on the Mediterranean Sea. It boasts approximately 800 miles of coastline and some of the the most beautiful beaches in the world. Though small, it is widely diverse, including not only beaches, but also the eastern end of Atlas mountain range, the northern portion of the Sahara Desert, fertile agricultural areas, and fascinating desert oases.
Tunisia has an incredibly rich history and has some of the world's finest Roman ruins, historic walled cities, and medieval-era mosques. It is home to eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
With its mix of Arab and European cultural influences, Tunisia is well known for it multiculturalism and open-mindedness. Arabic and French are spoken throughout, but English can be heard more and more, particularly among young people and in the major cities.
