Nagpur is a highly liveable city with great public transport, lovely green spaces and good health care services. It's known for its sweet oranges and is often referred to as the Tiger Capital of India thanks to its proximity to 13 of the country's tiger reserves. Nagpur is in the centre of India in the Maharashtra region. It's densely populated and as well as tiger reserves, it's surrounded by various national parks.
The city has several attractions including Sitabuldi Fort, temples and the Zero Mile Stone, which marks the centre of colonial India. To the west of the centre is Krazy Castle Aqua Park, which has elaborate water slides like the splash tower, designed to look like a castle, and a 40 foot-wide bowl slide.
