Celebration of 10 years of Chess City

FIDE The official proclamation by Ignatius Leong, FIDE General Secretary, declares:

“In the steppes was built the world’s first ever ‘chess city‘ which housed the foreign visitors who witnessed how a small city with a small population provided one of the best hospitality to the world chess community. I am sure the visitors today still cherish the warm hospitality of Kirsan’s citizens”.
