Charlotte's Fourth Sister City Partner
Voronezh is located 350 miles south of Moscow and dates back to 1585. Currently, the population of Voronezh is over 1 million. Many of the industries in Voronezh produce a large part of Russia’s farm machinery and construction materials. On June 26, 1991, Mayor Sue Myrick signed an agreement with the mayor of Voronezh, making Voronezh and Charlotte Sister Cities. Voronezh and Charlotte have enjoyed being Sister City partners ever since.
Charlotte and Voronezh have a wonderful relationship consisting of successful local events and international exchanges. Some of the highlights from our relationship include the warm clothing drive, our musical student exchange, and the VRTC Disability Delegation to Voronezh.
