Carnival of Cultures, Berlin 2014 - Photo Essay

Berlin is a multicultural city. Everywhere you look you see people from  different countries, and every year this cultural diversity is celebrated during the annual Carnival of Cultures. The festival takes place in Kreuzberg and Neukölln, both neighbourhoods are known for being very multicultural and ethnicaly diverse. 

 

The grand finale of the Carnival is the street parade. This time around I think it is the best to let the photos speak for themselves.
