Dear Chess friends,

Welcome to our renewed website!

We have organised chess tournaments in Hungary since 1979. In 2010 we already organised the 28th International Balaton Chess Festival. These tournaments were held in Balatonbereny between 1979 – 1997, then from 2001 in Balatonlelle, a charming little town on the southern shore of Lake Balaton.

As we would like to provide further opportunities to play at chess tournaments for our returning and new Chess friends who wish to play in the spring and autumn months as well, the I. Heviz International Chess Festival was held in 2006, with the obvious motive to make tradition, and now in 2010 the International Balaton Chess Festival will also be held in the town of Heviz.

The HotelPalace provides luxurious circumstances for both the chess players and their relatives who intend to relax or recuperate, since the largest thermal medicinal spring and lake in the world can be found in Heviz, which also guarantees that every visitor will be a regular guest in this town.

The main objective for us is that the chess players paying a visit to our tournaments, together with their family members fond of bathing, excursions and sports, can enjoy a pleasant stay with us. We intend to create attractive conditions for both the professional and amateur players who love chess, and we are delighted to see more and more familiar faces at our chess tournaments every year.

Surfing our website you can find further information and photos about our current and previous tournaments and we constantly expand the archives so that you can enjoy more and more games besides competing.

We do hope that we can meet you personally at our chess tournaments in the near future.

With kind regards from:

RIGÓ, János and MÉSZÁROS, Kata
