The town, which has 3,800 inhabitants, lies 10 km from Kalisz in Poland. The city of Ricany has had a partnership agreement since 2016 and has been a very active partner since then. The partnership with this Polish city set the goal at the very beginning to create a comprehensive cooperation in the field of mutual knowledge of culture, tradition and history of the nation, strengthening economic and cultural relations, building relations between educational and scientific institutions. The exchange of knowledge and experience in the management of local government and cooperation in the use of European Union funds are beneficial. This vision is being fulfilled through concrete actions. The management of the town hall held discussions on the possibility of exchange visits for primary school children, on cooperation in forestry, but there were also cultural and sporting issues.
