  • Built in 1998 on the eve of the year 33 chess Olympiad, cottage settlement was an island of incredible civilization for the locals. Today, this history and one of the main points of turmarshruta on the Kalmyk capital. On its territory there are Wedding Palace, hotel, restaurants (according to many acquaintances and personal experience, not the best Raleigh). The main chess town city chess Hall, glass building stylized under kalmyckuju place. Under its dome flags of countries-participants of the Olympiad, the spiral staircase to the interactive exhibition "Unique Kalmykia" on 2 floor and chess Museum on 3-EM (single entrance ticket 50 rubles per adult, good guides), a couple of souvenir shops. Life hack: City chess has its own water purification station, so you can try to drink from the tap.

  • A quiet and peaceful place. In the Palace there are chess Museum Kalmyk culture, where we did a tour and offered free photo taken in national costume, but already paid. And chess Museum (which is not very impressed). Also sold souvenirs (a lot of souvenirs). Vendors and other officials speak so calmly and quietly, that releases you, and becomes good.
