“Chess hotel” still possibility in Tallin


Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, a billionaire from Kalmykia, is reportedly looking for land in Tallinn on which to build a “chess hotel”. The president of the international chess federation FIDE wants to build high-rise buildings in the shapes of chess pieces in the different member states of the chess federation. He visited Tallinn to explore this issue last summer and met, among others, Mart Siimann, president of the Estonian Olympic Committee, Juri Ratas, a deputy parliamentary speaker, and Kaia Jappinen, deputy mayor of Tallinn. “The issue will be more extensively discussed this autumn, in connection with the desire of the Estonian Chess Association to organise the world cup tournament in Tallinn in 2011,” said Hendrik Olde, CEO of the Estonian Chess Association.
