Lists of Twin Towns and Sister Cities

Lists Of Twin Towns And Sister Cities

This is a list of "twin towns" or "sister cities" — that is, pairs of towns or cities in different countries which have town twinning arrangements. Where known, the date of formation of the twinning agreement is included in parentheses.

Note that the list is likely to always remain incomplete, since no canonical list of such arrangements exists; even those towns that are listed may well have arrangements which are not listed here. However, a searchable, interactive list is to be posted by Sister Cities International. Note also that any twinning arrangement should be listed at two locations in the list: once for each of the towns involved in the arrangement.

Due to the extreme size of this list and for ease of navigation, the list is divided into several separate lists by continent, which are then organized by country, and in some cases (where there are a large number of twinnings to list) by an appropriate sub-division of the country (e.g. the UK is divided by ceremonial county). Lists for some countries have in turn been moved to separate lists, which are linked individually below.

Famous quotes containing the words lists of, cities, sister, lists, twin and/or towns:

    Most of our platitudes notwithstanding, self-deception remains the most difficult deception. The tricks that work on others count for nothing in that very well-lit back alley where one keeps assignations with oneself: no winning smiles will do here, no prettily drawn lists of good intentions.
    Joan Didion (b. 1934)

    In bombers named for girls, we burned
    The cities we had learned about in school—
    Till our lives wore out; our bodies lay among
    The people we had killed and never seen.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    For she has made me the laily worm
    That lies at the fit o’ the tree,
    An’ my sister Masery she’s made
    The machrel of the sea.
    —Unknown. The Laily Worm and the Machrel of the Sea (l. 5–8)

    Most of our platitudes notwithstanding, self-deception remains the most difficult deception. The tricks that work on others count for nothing in that very well-lit back alley where one keeps assignations with oneself: no winning smiles will do here, no prettily drawn lists of good intentions.
    Joan Didion (b. 1934)

    We live under continual threat of two equally fearful, but seemingly opposed, destinies: unremitting banality and inconceivable terror. It is fantasy, served out in large rations by the popular arts, which allows most people to cope with these twin specters.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    Even in our democratic New England towns the accidental possession of wealth, and its manifestation in dress and equipage alone, obtain for the possessor almost universal respect.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
