During this week-end, we offer you to discover places where took place one of the most impressive, symbolic and bloodiest battle of the French Invasion of Russia in 1812: the battle of Borodino, which allowed the capture of empty and ruined Moscow by Napoleon so-called "Grande Armée". The battle of Borodino weakened the French Army, and announced their future long retreat and numerous losses.
Napoleon himself, wrote the following report about the battle of Borodino: "Of the fifty battles I have fought, the most terrible was that before Moscow. The French showed themselves to be worthy victors, and the Russians can rightly call themselves invincible".
The battle of Borodino is a founding event of Russian patriotism.
