The Tri-City has been on everyone’s lips lately, and our partners often emphasize that their employees are very often thinking about moving to the Tri-City. The most frequently mentioned advantages are access to the sea and the beach, high-quality air, the vast Tri-City Landscape Park and extensive infrastructure, which makes the Tri-City simply a good place to live: the moraine hills surrounding the agglomeration allow you to develop your sports passions. The sea is a perfect stimulus for all kinds of water sports, and an extensive network of bicycle paths allows you to choose an eco-friendly way of commuting to work. We also draw from all this and run passion development clubs, perfectly integrating the Olivia community.
