Enter the Budapest Spring Festival Chess Tournament 2017!

Date of tournament: 18-26th March 2017 Dear Chessfriends! The Budapest Chess Federation organizes the Budapest Spring Festival International Chess Tournament again, between 18-26th March 2017 in the Balna event center. With the patronage of Budapest Spring Festival, the Municipality of Budapest, the Hungarian Tourism Agency, the Szerencsejatek Zrt. and the Hungarian Chess Federation, we could make this event alluring with friendly conditions and high prizes. It means a huge natural attraction for foreign players that the tournament is organized in Budapest. The Budapest Spring Festival Chess Tournament, according to the current state of organization, has a significance in the chess life of Budapest and Hungary as it had last time in the 1990s. We hope that in the next years we can organize stronger and stronger competitions, so in a few years we will become a flagship tournament not only in Hungary, but in Europe too. I wish you a successful tournament and please enjoy your stay in Budapest
