5-9 May,2006 -  director of foreign relations department of the Odessa city council has visited a twin-city Split (Republic Croatia).


Communications between these two cities have been established in 1964, however during last years were limited, as a matter of fact, to an exchange of congratulations on celebrating dates.

The Mayor (or "town governor") of Split Zvonimir Pulich became one of the first who has responded to an appeal of Odessa to renew real cooperation. The first steps are already made. On March of this year command of the Association of Odessa yachtsmen "Odessa-200" took part in the International sailing regatta "Diocletian’s Cup ", passed in Split.
- Problems which experience cities all over the world, are rather similar, - Oleg Dolzhenkov has noted. - Split, as well as Odessa, is simultaneously a resort, port and industrial centre. In the past to year Split has accepted the General plan for development of city. Therefore we wish to study principles on which inhabitants of Split were based at definition of zoning of territory of city, definition of approaches to building and development of transport communications, regulations of accommodation of external advertising on buildings-monuments of architecture.
It is possible to pay for a parking, using not only a credit card, but also a mobile phone In Split! The payment for a parking will be written simply off from your account. - We have agreed about a constant exchange of experience between Odessa and Split on questions which are at present priority.
Odessa has 38 twin cities. It is not necessary to invent a bicycle each time and to operate with a trial and error method, but it is necessary to give more attention to experience of our partners.
During the lead meetings the arrangement on official visit of mayor of Split Zvonimir Pulich to Odessa has been reached.
