The idea of organizing a chess festival in Prague first emerged in 2017, and almost immediately, preparations were set in motion. The first year of the Prague International Chess Festival took place in March 2019 at the four-star Don Giovanni Hotel Prague.
A central vision was to create an environment that enhances the skills of every participating player.
