Great Photos of the Baku Olympiad Opening Ceremony - Thanks to David Llada

Azerbaijan Girls! Waiting for the start of the Opening Ceremony.

Singing the National Anthem of Azerbaijan - A Wonderful Vocal Performance!





















Fantastic dance performances - easily one of the best Opening Ceremonies in the history of Chess Olympiads!






The grand finale to a very memorable evening! 



Finally, the drawing of lots by the leading teams in both Women and Open sections - China's Hou Yifan and the Chief Arbiter with Russia's Vladimir Kramnik


As expected of a most gracious host, FIDE was given due respect by the organisers
