Our Sister Cities

Sister Cities of Louisville offers a unique opportunity for the Louisville community to be part of an organization that promotes peace, understanding, and respect among nations. At the local level, there are opportunities for personal development, new friendships, and new challenges to understand the world around us. On the municipal level, the exchange of experiences between cities leads to new ideas and unique solutions to problems. From the national vantage point,  the "grassroots" contact allows people from all nations to learn from one another. This process benefits Louisville as well as members from other sister city communities around the world.
