VLADIVOSTOK, October 6 (Itar-Tass) — A delegation of the city-port of Nakhodka, led by Boris Gladkikh, First Deputy Head of the City Administration, arrived in the South Korean city of Donghae on Thursday to mark the establishment of twinning contacts between the two cities.
Within the scope of the visit, the delegation is to have official meetings at the Donghae City Council and tour the city's port infrastructure facilities.
On the occasion of the 20th jubilee of twinned-city relations, the Nakhodka delegation will present a commemorative sculptural composition as a gift to the South Korean city. The sculpture will be installed in the Park of Twinned Cities.
The sculptural composition has been made from white marble and consists of two symmetrically positioned figures, which by their plasticity represent an entwinement resembling uplifted palms and form the silhouette of heart. The lower part of the composition reveals two seawaves: both Donghae and Nakhodka are seaside cities.
The twinning relationship between Nakhodka and Donghae was established in October 1991. Over the past two decades the twinned cities have arranged for a good deal of joint activities and exchanges in the fields of the economy, culture, education and sports, with city residents, primarily schoolchildren and young people participating.
In recent years the two cities have been actively developing reciprocal tourism. It has become easier for Nakhodka folk to get to the South Korean twinned city due to the opening of a Vladivostok-Donghae-Sakaiminato cargo-and-passenger ferry line. The Nakhodka delegation's visit will continue till Oct 9.
