• 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.
