Sets of carved Chess

The Russian wooden hand made chess at the craft market "Vernisazh"
Russia is famous all over the world for its arts and souvenir crafts but especially for Russian crafts people. As to chess in tsarist (imperial) Russia playing chess was quite popular with noble and aristocratic people. It was a good manner to play chess and especially to own a very good hand crafted chess board and chess set. But most popular in Russia chess playing became in soviet times. Since then and now amateur and professional chess players prefer to play chess on a good chess board with good hand crafted chess pieces. They are the symbols of prosperity and respect to the opponent.

Upon arrival I was welcomed by Arthur and I felt welcomed and with such a friendly atmosphere I had a fantastic start! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that he deserves a special thanks. I had three great days there, which obviously also added up to the experience.

Arthur is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking with him The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment.

The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me All respect for Aruther who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide!

Special Thanks for his Warm Coat,Hat and a delicious dinner (cooked by his 77 yrs mothers)....I am also so thankful of his mother as well . ...
