«Kaissa» boarding house in Alushta — is one of the few chess oases in an increasingly «dry» Chess Ukraine. This is the place where almost all the leading chess players of Ukraine, other neighboring countries, and now also from abroad, took part in tournaments and training camps. It is enough to say that fourth out of six players from the winning team of Ukraine on Olympiad in Calvia 2004 — Ponomariov, Karjakin, Eljanov and Moiseenko — have regularly played in Alushta, had training camp and had a rest. Always a warm and homely atmosphere in the boarding house, had contributed to the full creativity and a wonderful relaxation in the picturesque Alushta!
