THE LEGENDARY NAPOLEON IN BRNO

Guided tour in English
Prohlídka s průvodcem

Who does not know the legendary French commander Emperor Napoleon I. His famous victory in the battle of the "Three Emperors" on December 2, 1805 near Slavkov, on the battlefield southeast of Brno, is known to almost every history lover. On his campaign from the English Channel to the central Europe, during which he pursued Russian and the Austrian troops who unsuccessfully tried to invade France, he reached Brno in November 1805. It was then occupied by French troops and Napoleon himself stayed in the city. Four years later, in the summer and autumn of 1809, during the so-called Danube campaign, French troops arrived in Moravia and in Brno again, and the legendary warlord Emperor Napoleon I returned to the battlefield, where he fought one of the most important battles of his career, and briefly to the city too.  

During the approximately two-hour walk in the center of Brno, we will learn what the occupation of the town looked like, where Napoleon, his staff and the generals were housed, what happened in the city, which suffered greatly from the occupation in 1805 in particular, and which places were the main scene of the events at that time. We will also learn about the transformation of the city and these places from the beginning of the 19th century to the present day.
