This is tension free unrated chess tournament in absolutely relaxing ambience for chess connoisseurs who love travel, culture and delicious cuisine. This is not a tough professional rated tension packed chess tournament. Amateur chess players can participate. Non-chess players can also participate as accompanying persons.

We also have arranged a Blitz Chess Tournament one day.

Though we play chess for the love of it, don’t forget, 4000 euros worth prizes await you!
