The so called “Little Town of Bethlehem”, famous for the birth of Jesus Christ, is undoubtedly an important place in the modern world… Bethlehem is a very significant center for Palestinian heritage and culture as well.
Look at the table below – not too many towns can boast such a number of twin cities as Bethlehem. Athens – Greece, Cologne – Germany, Milan – Italy, Madaba – Jordan, Abu Dhabi – UAE, Sacramento – USA and the list continues and is to be continued, because many cities still queue to twin with the place of Jesus’ birth.
Thanks to those relations Bethlehemites can experience cultural exchanges in Bethlehem or in some of the sister towns.
