Festivalito Rural  2015


For the second year, Festivalito Rural will take place in a recently renovated 1912 mansion of Marianum Institute Veržej, Puščenjakova ulica 1, 9241 Veržej.

The mansion is located in a village called Veržej , located in the flat part of Prlekija region in eastern Slovenia, close to three(!) borders: Hungarian, Austrian and Croatian. Take a look at the GoogleMap!

The mansion is really big, so it will easily host all our activities:

Milongas will take place in a former chapel (now a seminar room) inside the mansion. The floor is wooden (real, old wood), the place air conditioned and (happy news for all of us who have suffered last year) has mosquito nets installed, making it possible to dance at open windows. The room is somewhat oblong, true, but still wide enough to accommodate two ronda circles — no place for acrobats in the middle, though! :-) There is a bar next to the milonga hall and our waiter is a sommelier, who will present you the Marianum Institute home grown wines!
Tango classes will take place in the former chapel, as well, while bodywork classes will take place in one of the smaller seminar rooms of the mansion.
The mansion contains a hostel! For details, see the accommodation section.
The mansion has a restaurant. On-site accommodation includes breakfast and dinner (buffet)! (It will be possible to book dinners even if living off-site.)

Veržej is a very small village with a supermarket, a post office, an ATM and a pub. All of which are within walking distance of the festivalito venue, of course.

Really, the only shoes you will have to put on in three days are the dancing ones :-) That is, unless you decide to take a walk along the Mura river and visit the floating mill, indulge in thermal pools in the neighbouring village Banovci, take a walk across the fields or drive to the vineyards around Jeruzalem for some winetasting.
