Following the Second World War, Town Twinning was extended in Europe as a means of promoting mutual understanding and cross-border projects.
Town twinning is supported by the European Union and since 1989 The Council of European Municipalities and Regions has worked closely with the European Commission to promote modern, high quality twinning initiatives and exchanges that involve all sections of the community.
The European Union had fostered more than 7,000 bilateral relationships involving almost 10,000 European municipalities and in most cases geographical distance has very little influence upon communities' selections of a twin town. In fact Town twinning has increasingly been used to form strategic international business links.
