History of the city partner­ship

Existing long-standing and friendly contacts played a decisive role in the decision of Karls­ru­he's City Council to establish a city friendship with the Russian twin city of Krasnodar in 1992. Contacts in the areas of culture and sports, youth exchanges and a lively inter­change between the city adminis­tra­ti­ons were reasons to turn the friendship into an official city partner­ship.

About Krasnodar

Krasnodar, the capital of the Kuban region is the southern­most district capital in Russia. Today, the city located on the Kuban River flowing into the Sea of Azov has more than 765,000 inhabi­tants; including Russians but also Ukrainians, Armenians, Greeks and Germans. An extremely fertile agricul­tu­ral region which benefits in equal measure from arable soils and a mild climate spreads out around the metropolis located between the Caucasus Mountains and the Black Sea. The region around Krasnodar thus is also able to contain the world's northern­most tea growing region. Grain, sunflowers, fruit and rice are exported to 69 countries.
