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.

“Behold then Septimus Dodge returning to Dodge-town victorious. Not crowned with laurel, it is true, but wreathed in lists of things he has seen and sucked dry. Seen and sucked dry, you know: Venus de Milo, the Rhine or the Coloseum: swallowed like so many clams, and left the shells.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)

—John Ruskin (18191900)

flowering above sister grass-daisies pink tiny
bloomlets angelic as lightbulbs”

As stiff twin compasses are two;
Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show
To move, but doth if th other do.”

“The recent attempt to secure a charter from the State of North Dakota for a lottery company, the pending effort to obtain from the State of Louisiana a renewal of the charter of the Louisiana State Lottery, and the establishment of one or more lottery companies at Mexican towns near our border, have served the good purpose of calling public attention to an evil of vast proportions.”
—Benjamin Harrison (18331901)
