Manchester, in England, is the most culturally diverse city for its size in the world.

The city with population of nearly 503,000 is a place where people speak at least 153 different languages.

"Manchester's language diversity is higher than many countries in the world," Yaron Matras, who co-organised a study on Manchester, was quoted as saying.

Cities such as New York, London and Paris also rank highly, but they are much larger. According to Discovery News, people of Manchester, described as "Mancunian", represent nearly every culture on the planet.
