We would like to express our sincere welcome to all participants of the FIDE Women Grand Prix, dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Tigran Petrosian's victory, which is being held in Dilijan resort town. It is indeed a great honor of ours to meet you in this picturesque town.

Dilijan is a resort town, surrounded by the Lesser Caucasus mountain-range, and lies in the north-eastern part of the Republic of Armenia, in the valley of the Aghstev river.
