The Municipality of Nuremberg is the twin city of the Municipality of Kavala and is active in a wide range of municipal, national and European programmes. The Municipality of Nuremberg is a particularly active organisation that implements various initiatives in areas like entrepreneurship, education, culture, social welfare, youth and athleticism. The two twin cities have accomplished to preserve a long-term partnership between people and organisations in their countries, through a wide range of exchanges, projects, European programmes and initiatives. More precisely, they have managed to exchange employees of their municipalities, participate in commercial and tourist exhibitions, organise cultural events, exchange know-how on utilising natural resources, participate in sport events and collaborate on co-financed programmes as partners. This long-lasting and fruitful relationship guarantees the implementation of any joint action.
