Municipal borders of Sweden .

This is a list of Municipalities of Sweden having standing links to local government areas in other countries. In some rare cases there are also twinnings with other municipalities within Sweden. In most cases, the association, especially when formalised by local government, is known as "town twinning" (swed. vänort), though other terms, such as "partner towns" or "sister cities" are sometimes used instead. The list is, as of May 2010, far from complete.
