List of twin towns and sister cities in Russia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Map of Russia

This is a list of places in Russia 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 Russia, the term "brother cities" is also sometimes used.[1]
