Yekaterinburg's German consulate hosts Days of Europe

Last week, the German consulate in Yekaterinburg held Days of Europe, a festival celebrating Russian and German culture.

The two-day event featured screenings of German films, German language lessons, concerts and culinary showcases.

The festival was kicked off on Friday with "Europa Lacht," a festival of short German films at Yekaterinburg's Salute Theater.

On Saturday, festival participants gathered at the Labor Plaza in Yekaterinburg for a bike ride through Mayakovsky Street, which was closed for vehicle traffic during the event. Event organizers transformed Mayakovsky Street into a fair where participants could sample an assortment of German foods and enjoy a German language lesson.
