about the video

More than 1000 actors from across Europe gathered near Tvarozna village in Moravia, Czech Republic to reenact the “Battle of Three Emperors.” Costumed soldiers from 17 countries re-enacted the most famous war of the 19th Century. In 1805 Napoleon’s soldiers defeated the combined forces of the Russian and Holy Roman empires. About 18,000 soldiers had died in just one day. Historians consider Napoleon’s this victory as most impressive.
