Twinning is a simple concept, where two distinct areas are paired, in the hope of increasing cultural links. in Europe these pairs are normally known as "Twin towns"
The first towns to ever be twinned were Coventry in The UK and Stalingrad in the Soviet Union (at the time).
Some well known towns to be twinned are:
Reading - Dusseldorf
Bristol - Porto, Bordeaux, Hamburg
Bolton - Le Mans, Paderborn
Greater London - Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, New York, Tehran, Moscow, Beijing
Some not so well known:
Knowsly - Moers
Rippon - Fiox
Whitby - Port Stanley
Some towns have twinned with their namesakes:
Taunton - UK & USA
Stafford - UK & USA
Newcastle - UK, SA & Australia
Some of these were known to me the rest I had to look up on Wiki.
