Pardubice maintains a number of twin town relationships. A number of these relationships are based on a long and rich tradition of cooperation. With other towns the relationship is newer, but no less intensive. Thanks to these partnerships, however, a number of relationships struck up between individual citizens and various groups and institutions. It's these relationships that produce the greatest benefit of such a twin town partnership. It is not uncommon for towns and cities to have cooperated in the past owing to the inherent mutual benefits, whether from a material, cultural or social point of view. However, in today's united Europe where these values apply twofold Pardubice highly respects these relationships and ensures they are taken care of and built upon.
