I had the privilege of visiting Lake Bled resort in Slovenia a few days ago and although it was only 2 days long visit, I managed to relax and absorb some of that magnificent atmosphere.
Of course, some of the greatest chess encounters took place there, most notably the legendary Interzonal Tournament in 1959, when Fischer got his GM norm and crossed swords with all the top grandmasters of the time.
But, when I think of Bled , 2 games always come to my mind, both played in tournaments held there...
These 2 games are well known to most chess lovers, but I had to share some of chess magic inspired by the beauty of Bled.
