Sister Cities and Twin Towns

The city of Kajaani has been a twin town since 1943.
The activities have changed over the years and nowadays they aim to be more concrete. A good example of this is the handmade artwork “Fish”, commissioned from our Chinese twin city Jiujiang, which was revealed in 2013 at the Water Sports Centre Kaukavesi.
