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.

I found Arthur's details via a google search and discovered lots of excellent testimonials regarding his services for my trip to Moscow, and I was not disappointed! From the meeting at the airport to catching a train to Nizhny Novgorod Arthur took care of everything. Being English I feel that our customer service standards have slipped, but it is a breath of fresh air to find this standard of exceptional service does still exist! Without Arthur my trip to Russia would have been very mediocre, as I was travelling alone to visit a friend. Please if you are travelling to Moscow don't take a chance book Arthur; he is not only an excellent driver and guide with a geat deal of enthusiasm and passion for his city but also a gentleman and a friend. I will be returning to Moscow and the first person that I will contact before the visa office is Arthur. All the best to you, you are a top man!!! Neil Smith England!:)
