The first of two opportunities to go inside several embassies in and around Dupont Circle is set to come this weekend.

The “Around the World Embassy Tour” is slated to give glimpses behind the doors of dozens of embassies in Dupont Circle, Kalorama and other parts of the Borderstan coverage area Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Many of the embassies also will have free food and other giveaways.

Cultural Tourism DC, the nonprofit organization behind the event, adds on its website:

Participants can travel the world as they experience the food, art, dance, fashion, and music of different countries. In the past, visitors have been treated to karate demonstrations, dance performances, sari wrapping lessons, and henna demonstrations.

Here are the embassies opening to the public in our coverage area:
