Milongas at Casa Latina every Friday; Ulitsa Sadovaya 28/30, Corpus 1
People come here to learn and dance at weekly salsa swing parties and Milongas, just to chat with friends and relax after the work week, have a cup of tea and admire the night city (and Gostiny Dvor) from the window. New people are always welcome at Casa. The first lesson in the studio is always free!
White Nights Tango Festival/ Ulitsa Chaikovskogo 26
A tango celebration filled with the romantic atmosphere of St Petersburg in the summer. Grand balls, concerts, nighttime milongas on a ship under the raised bridges, a DJ forum, exhibitions, lectures and open air gatherings! The meeting place is the Tangomania dance centre on Ulitsa Chaikovskogo 26 and the best dance halls of the city on the Neva!
The main venue for the festival this year is the Olympia Palace located in the historic centre of the city at Liteyny Prospekt 14.

The sky above you, sunset, Neva river and the sounds of Argentinian tango! The first notes were played on 18 May at 17:00, kicking of the open-air season in St Petersburg!
Enjoying dance sessions in the fresh air and the most beautiful locations of the city has already become a firm favourite for tango fans.
Each year the entire tango community endeavours to support it!
