Chess (Chaturanga) originates from India, and the chess tournament will be organised for the citizens of Dubrovnik in partnership with the Croatian Chess Federation. India has four chess players under the age of 20 within the top 20 on the Chess Standard Top 100 ranking. Chess is both an ancient tradition and a modern trend in India.


Jazz maestro Zoran Majstorović will be responsible for the musical background, performing Indian Raga music on various string instruments, as music creates bridges among people without the need for a common language.

An evening of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda

To enhance human potential and lead a happier life, these traditional systems represent our most valuable tools.

"Bridging Science and Spirituality"

Science and spirituality connect microscopic and macroscopic reality, and try to make sense of human experience and physical reality. Science does it through intellect, experiment and the five senses, spirituality does it through intuition, experience and the sixth sense. As science makes people's lives more practical, it has a hard time making lives a blissful experience. That is why a bridge between "science and spirituality" is needed so that we can transform the human experience and improve peace, progress and prosperity on our planet.
