Napoleon in Brno (2014)

Postby FireTight » Sat Nov 22, 2014 8:37 pm

Today, Napoleon visited my hometown (Brno, Czech Republic)... again, after 209 years. He spent cca 10 days here before Battle of Slavkov (= Austerlitz in our language). Enjoy my photos and video! :)

Wow what immaculate uniforms! I wonder if these men came all the way from Paris for this

re-enactment? I love all the actors in them as well very realistic! Especially the carriage guard

with his very snooty looking French pose! Magnefique!
