  • Ulaanbaatar is located in north central Mongolia in a valley along the Tuul River.


  • With well over one million residents, it is both the country’s capital and the largest regional city.


  • The name ‘Ulaɣan Baɣatur’ literally translates to “red hero” in honor of military leader Damdin Sukhbaatar, whose warriors liberated Mongolia from Chinese occupation in 1921.
  • In November of 2001, after a trade mission that took him throughout Asia, former Mayor Webb returned to Denver with the intention of making Ulaanbaatar our tenth sister city.


  • For many years prior to the Mayor’s visit, people in Denver and Ulaanbaatar had already been working hard to make this sister city relationship a reality.


  • After a resolution was passed by the city council and a visit from the Mayor of Ulaanbaatar to make everything official, Ulaanbaatar became the most recent addition to Denver’s ever-growing family of sister cities.


  • One of the most compelling reasons for Denver’s sister city relationship with Ulaanbaatar is the fact that outside of Mongolia itself, Denver is home to one of the largest Mongolian populations in the U.S.


  • With this strong relationship and cultural exchange having been in place for many years, an official sister city relationship was the logical progression.


  • With so much interest and participants available, this relationship was able to start strong and continue thriving.
  • Many festivals and celebrations have been held in order to celebrate Mongolian culture within Denver.


  • Visits to Denver by Mongolia’s Prime Minister and then its President caused the recognition of this growing relationship to accelerate.


  • Both Mayoral and City Council visits from Ulaanbaatar are happening on an annual basis.


  • The Denver-Ulaanbaatar committee also sends a delegation from Denver to Ulaanbaatar annually.


  • Today, business is increasingly being conducted between these two cities and numerous Ulaanbaatar/Denver cultural, research, and foundation activities are being carried out.


  • The largest of the endeavors between the two cities is the exchange program. Under the Ulaanbaatar committee, four high schools began a series of exchanges that involved both students and teachers in U.S. and Mongolian communities in 2006.
    • Today, there are six high schools involved, three in the Ulaanbaatar area and three in the US.
    • Representing rural and urban areas, these high schools are situated on the Navajo Nation, Mandalgov, Ulaanbaatar, and Denver, CO.
    • The Luby-Jenkins School Pairing Program (named after Nancy Luby, former Chair of the Denver Sister Cities Ulaanbaatar committee, and Walt Jenkins) has brought together students and their teachers to learn through direct educational and personal experiences about different countries’ cultures and people.
