85 years ago
FIDE (international chess federation) was created.

On July 20, 1924 in Paris representatives from fifteen countries signed the declaration to form FIDE. The original signatories were mainly European but today FIDE has 166 member federations in all Continents.

Starting from 1966 each year on July 20 FIDE celebrates the International Chess Day.
Chess is a special game that unite people all over the world. More than 500 millions people play chess worldwide. Some very interesting chess photos can be found on the Visualrian web-site.

I want to congratulate all the chess players and people who love chess on this wonderful day! Let hope that one day battles and wars will take place only on chess boards.

My best chess wishes to all of you!

Alexandra Kosteniuk
Women's World Chess Champion
