    there is a famous chess club in St. Ptersburg, it is located in a street crossing  Nevski prospekt. I do not remember the name of the street, but many people can tell you. When I saw the long row of fotos of players who came from that club, I was very impressed. Karpov, Kortchnoi, Furman, Spasski...

    The club was open every day when I visited it many years ago.

    yeah, the name is from a Russian Tsar who lived in the early midages.

    The street is known under that name since it was built, in 18th century.

    Probably you saw some bad movies, with sinisterr RRussianss with that awfulll accent.

    No, St Peterburg is in Russia. Poland is a totally different country...

    I misunderstood your request. I thought that you were looking for games in Russia. That is why I suggested the web site but Poland is not Russia. Poland is a separate country.

    Incidentally, if you are a games enthusiast searching for quality chess products, you can check out www.polishchess.com

    you will hardly find a street name in Poland named after a Russian Tsar, lol.
