Pardubice currently maintains partnership relations with several cities. With some of them, Pardubice has a long and rich tradition of cooperation, while others are newer but no less intense. In any case, however, thanks to the partnerships between the cities, many links and personal friendships have been formed between individual citizens and various groups and institutions. This is where the greatest benefit of such partnerships lies. Municipalities and towns have always cooperated with each other because it has been mutually beneficial not only materially, but also culturally and socially. Today, at a time of European unification, when these values are doubly valid, the City of Pardubice values its relations and takes care of them accordingly.
