Rethymno’s twin towns

This is a list of places in Greece having standing links to local communities in other countries. In most cases, the association, especially when formalised by local government, is known as "town twinning" (though other terms, such as "partner towns" or "sister cities" are sometimes used instead), and while most of the places included are towns, the list also comprises villages, cities, districts, counties, etc. with similar links. In Greek, the word αδελφοποίηση / adelfopiisi (fraternisation) has been adopted.
