A view of Paris

Twin towns and sister cities are cooperative agreements between towns, cities, and even counties in geographically and politically distinct areas to promote cultural and commercial ties.[1] Conceived after the Second World War, the concept of twinning was originally intended to foster friendship and understanding between different cultures (and between former foes, as an act of peace and reconciliation[2]). Paris is twinned with a number of cities:[3][4]
