Twin Cities of Bristol

In addition to Hannover and Bordeaux, Bristol has five more twin cities.

In 1984 Bristol was twinned with Oporto, Portugal. The Bristol-Oporto Association (BOA) manages the twinning.

Bristol was twinned with Tbilisi, Georgia, in 1988 and the twinning initiatives are managed by the Bristol-Tbilisi Association (BTA).

Another twin city of Bristol is Puerto Morazán in Nicaragua. The link was set up and developed by the voluntary association Bristol Link with Nicaragua (BLINC) in 1989.

The Bristol Link with Beira (BLB) manages the twinning between Bristol and Beira, Mozambique, which has existed since 1990.

Finally, the most recent twin city is Guangzhou, China. Bristol was twinned with Guangzhou in 2001 and this twinning is managed by The West of England China Bureau (WoECB).
