Gundulićeva ul. 6A
“Hrvatski glazbeni zavod (Croatian musical institute)” is the oldest musical institution in Zagreb and one of the most important concert halls in Croatia.
It was founded in 1827 and it is known for its outstandingly rich acoustics. The building itself is a protected cultural heritage of Croatia and we’re really proud and happy that we will be able to enjoy some beautiful moments of tango in it!
Perkovčeva ul. 2
The Adventango Thursday evening milonga venue will be “Novinarski dom (Journalist’s home)”, one of the pearls of Croatian architecture. It was designed by one of the most famous Croatian architects – Bruno Bauer, and built back in 1929.
The building itself is a protected cultural heritage of Croatia, it’s located in Zagreb city center, and we can’t wait to enjoy some moments of pure tango joy in it!
