Nov-18-23  Caissanist: The manufacturer of "Dubrovnik chess sets" has a web page devoted to this event, with many pictures from the tournament book: . It seems to have been really, really hot there.

Dear chess lovers!

Due to high interest in our chessmen the manufacture is occupied untill the end of 2025.

The design came about because the then current chess pieces were reminders of the decadent west.

<"A difficulty arose when the (communist) leadership realized that most of the chess sets used in professional play, up until that time, were connected with/inspired by “capitalism” in one way or another, so a new set would need to be designed.">

The report does mention how hot the weather was. There is a picture of this game Reshevsky vs Euwe, 1950 in progress (apparently voted best game in round one) Sammy appears to be waving a handkerchief like a fan to keep cool.
