What do I need to know before moving to Utrecht?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Utrecht, they said:

"Utrecht is a vibrant city with a rich history and culture. It is known for its canals, its many parks, and its lively nightlife. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Utrecht is relatively high, so it is important to budget accordingly. Additionally, the city is well-connected to the rest of the Netherlands and Europe, with excellent public transportation and easy access to airports. Expats should also be aware that the Dutch language is widely spoken in Utrecht, so it is helpful to learn some basic Dutch before moving.
