On 11 June 2002, Peterhof citizens together with the Summer Academy participants from Bad Homburg planted young limes in Friendship Alley to celebrate the town’s birthday. During the celebration of Peterhof’s 300th anniversary the delegations from Peterhof’s twin cities – Bad Homburg, Göttingen, Le Blanc-Mesnil, and Sopot – continued planting trees in Friendship Alley. Friendship has indeed struck deep root.

Our friendship has been connecting citizens of Peterhof & Bad Homburg for ten years. Studying the language, knowledge of each other culture stimulate people to make contacts with «native speakers» for correspondence, contact & co-measures.

The citizens of Peterhof and Bad Homburg have been friends for over 25 years. Learning each other’s languages and cultures helps to make new friends and facilitates common projects.

In 2003 the towns of Lomonosov and Oberursel signed the agreement on the establishment of twin towns relations. Similar to Peterhof and Lomonosov, Oberursel and Bad Homburg are neighboring towns. The organization for twin towns relations in Lomonosov is called Кalinkа. Its motto is “Friendship between towns is the friendship of their citizens”.
