“We are expecting a delegation from Heidelberg (a city in southwestern Germany),” he told RIA Novosti.

The delegation arrives as part of the development of twinning relations between Heidelberg and Simferopol.

"Within the framework of the visit, a meeting is planned at the Simferopol administration," Gempel said.

Another delegation from Germany intends to visit Crimea in November as part of the Children's Diplomacy project, the agency said.

In May, the head of the German delegation that visited the peninsula, Viktor Trippel, said that he had never seen such a delightful structure anywhere in the EU countries as the Crimean Bridge.
