Above are some pictures of beautiful Budapest, Hungary. You can click on the picture to see a larger image. This is the city where my sisters and I were born, raised and made chess history.

Some of you have repeatedly asked me to organize a special chess trip to my hometown Budapest ever since Mr. Korenman and I led a group of people on the (Chess for Peace) tour to Moscow, Russia earlier this year. Well, here it is! Below is the general information about this very special tour.

I will personally host this trip and show you the most spectacular places, rich culture and fabulous chess tradition of Budapest. The full detail will be posted on www.SusanPolgar.com in the next day or so.
