City of Johnston, USA

Johnston, Iowa and Peja, Kosovo have been sister cities since April 25, 2013. The Mayor of Peja at the time, Ali Berisha, traveled to Johnston to participate in a ceremony where the Sister City agreement, written in both English and Albanian, was signed. Mayor Berisha and his staff spent several days in Johnston learning about our community, touring schools and businesses, and sharing ideas about how we can help each other achieve mutual goals.
