St. Cloud's mayor leaves for the Czech Republic on Tuesday to promote his central Minnesota city.
St. Cloud is one of 10 finalists with cities of similar size vying for the title of the "worlds most livable city" at the annual LivCom Awards in the Czech city of Pilsen.
Mayor Dave Kleis will be armed with a video presentation and other promotional information.
Annapolis, Md., is the only other U.S. city in St. Cloud's size category, cities of 20,000 to 75,000 people.
This is the second time in three years St. Cloud has been a finalist for the award. St. Cloud tied for the top spot in 2007.
The winners will be announced next Monday. The LivCom awards began in 1997.
