About Twinning

Town twinning is the partnering of towns; the concept of pairing cities as a way to foster links among nations and citizens. Town twinning often pairs cities that share some common characteris­tics, such as similar demographics, the same names, or similar development is­sues.

This was the definition of twinning given by Jean Bareth, one of the founders of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) after the Second World War. In this way, he identified the primary values which twinning represents: friendship, co-operation and mutual awareness between people of Europe.

The first offcial town twinning relationship was started in 1930 between the cities of Klagenfurt (Austria) and Wiesbaden (Germany).
