Photos of the playing venue, Anand-Topalov WCC

Finally, we got some clear view through the keyhole of the playing venue that will serve as the "ring" for the upcoming World Chess Championship match between Vishwanathan Anand and Vaselin Topalov five days from now. A glimpse at the playing hall reveals a cozy place that reminds you of a baroque opera house. It's quite interesting how the noise proof glass walls that is to set in the venue fits well with the elegant interior of the Military Club. The playing hall would probably house around 150-200 spectators. Photos re-posted with kind permission from chessdom. More photos of the playing venue is here

Spectators point of view. Those lonely chairs waits their turn.

Audience entrance hall. Watch your steps, though.
