Berlin 

Karl-Marx-Allee Stalinist apartment blocks & tram

Apartment blocks in 1950's Soviet Stalinist style line the Karl-Marx-Allee. This is the junction with Petersburger Straße / Warschauer Straße, where the Karl-Marx-Allee becomes the Frankfurter Allee. A tram in yellow Berlin livery is heading along Petersburger Straße. The sign points to Prenzlauer Berg. This is part of the Bundesstraße (federal road) 96a.


Not so long ago East Germany's Communist government staged Soviet style military parades along the Karl-Marx-Allee.
