Anastasia Bodnaruk: return to Alushta
For the first time I got this wonderful city at the age of four. In the eight-year — I took part in a blitz-tournament, which was held in the city chess club. And only eleven years later I came back in Alushta, in order to take part in a grandmaster tournament. The chess club is not in sight, but the chess life in the city thrives in the boarding house «Kaissa», which is headed by a big fan of chess art international arbiter Galperin Leonid Zinovievich.
There are tournaments for every taste, a game in which you can combine with a fine holiday in a clean beach, where every day was delivered twice a day on a minibus. Thanks to the care and attention, which I here was surrounded by, I was able to relax perfectly and good play in two tournaments, where I shared 2-3 places. I hope that in the next summer again I was able to visit this beautiful place.
