Ostravsky konik 2023 - new year in a new venue

The International chess festival Ostravsky konik is the biggest chess event in the Moravian-Silesian region every year. However, after 17 years in the Culture House of Ostrava, due to its reconstruction and construction of a new concert hall, it is moving to new spaces in Cerna Louka Exhibition Centre. It will thus be closer to the center of Ostrava, with very good transport accessibility, in a pavilion with approximately twice the area of the Culture House.

After the traditional promotional events (7 tournaments as part of the rapid tour and the simultaneous tour of IM Lukas Klima), the main festival program will take place on May 6-14, 2023:
