Welcome to Budapest



Meet us at the 8th Judit Polgar's Global Chess Festival in Budapest, in the Hungarian National Gallery, among the works of the greatest Hungarian painters! 2022 is the Year of Women in Chess, which also defines the focus of this year's festival: Women in Chess - Women in Science. Let's explore together new paths and connections between chess and science, art, education and sport!
● Coding, robotics - and chess
● Chess in education: an international conference on best practices
● Judit Polgar Method: theory and practice
● Chess Influencers
● Chess tournaments and simuls
● Children's Kingdom: crafts and movement activities
● Chess art gallery
● Chess café
We have kept the hybrid nature of the chess festival, so those who cannot join us in person can follow the presentations and talks online. Join us for the chess festival! But in the meantime, read Judit Polgár's personal message.
