Sri Lanka was amongst the participants in the recently held Karneval der Kulturen or Carnival of Cultures in Berlin, Germany. During this popular street festival which was held from 7th to 10th June, spectators had the chance to witness some lively cultural performances from Sri Lanka including traditional dancing and drumming. This colourful display was organised by the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau in partnership with the Sri Lanka Embassy and Sri Lanka Association in Berlin. This event which is held annually is a celebration of diversity and featured similar performances from around the world.
Sri Lanka was also promoted as a tourist destination here, while the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau had a special counter providing information about what the country has to offer. Be it a beachside getaway at a Kalutara hotel the likes of Avani Kalutara Resort or a thrilling leopard safari in Yala, prospective visitors have much to look forward to on a holiday here.
