    Hi,
    I'll be traveling Aug 15-29 and be based out of Stockholm, Sweden. I will have some days off to seek out Tango and can travel if there is something of particular interest. I'm aware of one Tango resource for Stockholm:
    https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=sv&u=http://thetangoportal.com/&prev=search

    I was wondering if folks had any recommendations for Stockholm and as well, any suggestions for places to go which might have something special going on like a festival?

    And, if you have read this far, I'm also going to Iceland (Reykjavik) and have the tango scene researched so I know where to go/when, but if you have something to share, please let me know.
    Thanks.

    It will not be about the Argentine tango but eventually some about the Finnish tango at Kungsträdgård 24-26 August.
    Finland is 100 years as a nation this year. It will be celebrated in Sweden too just if you have time to check it up.

    The site is only in Finish or Swedish but i suppose you can ask windows to translate it to english.

    Thanks very much for the information and the videos. It's definitely enough to get me started. I did not realize there was such a vibrant tango community in Stockholm.
