Переключить на русский

Hi everyone!

We are glad to invite you once again to Remolino tango festival in Lviv.

Started in 2010 Remolino grows bigger every year and now it’s 22 milongas long from 2013 December 28th till 2014 January 7th.


Lviv (aka Lwów/Lemberg/Leopoli) is one of the main cultural centers of today's Ukraine,

mostly due to it's wonderful historical part that remained intact regardless of many wars around these lands.

It's located in western part of Ukraine, really close to Poland.

During festival there would be two big celebrations: New Year's Eve on December 31th and Orthodox Christmas on January 7th.

These are big holidays for both locals and most tourists, so expect lot of celebrations and a bit crowded city around these days.

Start looking for accommodation early, you will be glad you did!


All day milongas and smaller night milongas will be held at Dnister hotel. Bigger night milongas will be held at another place (Gracia sport center)

but a free transfer from Dnister and back will be provided for everybody. So just book a room at Dnister or somewhere very close,

this is best option for all milongas and is just 10 minutes away from main sightseeing locations.


One night milonga costs 10€. You may come even without registration, tickets for night milongas won’t be limited.

Day milongas on 2, 3, 4 of January will cost around 3€ and there will be limited amount of tickets sold directly at festival.

We are going to sell a limited batch of tickets every day so that even if you are coming in a middle of festival you'll have a chance to get them.

Day milongas on less crowded dates (29.12—1.01, 5.01—7.01) will be free to enter, no registration required.

Registration is over but it's NOT mandatory,

Please come if you want to,

we are ready for unexpected guests :)
