Did you know that the oldest surviving chess study is almost 900 years old? Are you familiar with chess compositions? Join us and discover this magical world, the creations of the Mozarts and rock stars of chess art! The Judit Polgar Chess Foundation invites chess enthusiasts on an artistic chess adventure for the fourth time, and this year we have once again asked outstanding chess study composers to create new compositions. The program honors the legacy and memory of the world-renowned Hungarian-American grandmaster and study composer, Pal Benko.

Play, and become a study solver!

Painting by Mariya Yugina inspired by the Chess Artistry adventures.

You can find an exciting selection of chess compositions from the previous years here: 2023, 2022, 2021

We reserve the right to make changes to the programmes.
