First, we stop on a small hilltop called ZURAN from where Napoleon planned the battle called the Battle of Three Emperors and had a 360 degree view of the whole area, including famous Pratzen Heights.. Standing there you will understand why he chose that hilltop. Now this area is a French territory. A bronze model shows where armies were stationed. From there we continue to another hilltop called SANTON and a place called the OLD POST (Nowadays there is a nice rustic restaurant where you can refresh) }near village of KOVALOVICE with a small museum showing the uniforms, guns and various artifacts from the AUSTERLITZ Battle. There is a nice nice statue dedicated to all dead horses in this battle.
From there we continue to town of AUSTERLITZ (in Czech Slavkov ) where we visit the local chateau where Napoleon celebrated his victory and slept after the battle. There is a nice park near the chateau. Then we drive to CAIRN OF PEACE, situated on top of the Prace hill / the Pratzen Heights, with a nice view of the area. An exhibition called The Battle of Three Emperors explains all the details from the battle.
Every year a reenactment (watch a professional nice video here ) of this battle takes place around December 2th. It is a big thing, when thousands of people come and admire the colours of various uniforms. For more info about the reenactment, please contact me.
If you a historian or a history buff and wish to see more places associated with the battle, please specify it. I would be more than happy to show you those places.
