Tango has become a true cultural heritage of the world. Tango joined the UNESCO family in 2009 and in European cities the tango scene has been active for decades. By organizing a number of training courses, workshops, milongas and an international tango festival, Split has become an important part of the cultural network.
The traditional “Tango Under Masks” this year will be organized in the comfortable surroundings of Gladiator Beach Club on Žnjan. Guests are expected from all over Croatia for this event and admission is free! The organizer is the Center of Dance led by Zvonimir Mimica.
