Battle of Vienna by Leonid Golovko, circa 2010

This magnificent chess set created by the very talented artist Leonid Golovko
A true piece of art.

Battle of Vienna took place on 11 and 12 September 1683, when the Ottoman Empire period of two months laid siege to Vienna, the capital of Austria. In a large battle won by Polish-Austrian-German troops under the command of Jan III Sobieski, King of Poland. Troops of the Ottoman Empire commanded Kara Mustafa, Grand Vizier Mehmed IV. Defeat was the beginning of the decline of the Ottoman Empire and the exaltation of the Habsburgs. If the Ottoman Empire defeated the siege of Vienna in 1683, Europe as we know it, most likely wouldn't exist!
