Naperville lies at the edge of Chicago and holds close contacts with the Slovak town of Nitra. Their partnership will turn 20 years next year. One of the streets of Naperville has also been named after the historical Slovak town.

The Naperville mayor told SITA that he regards Nitra to be one of the most beautiful cities. He has visited it six times so far.
