We thank all those who have steeled themselves this year with patience and respect for government regulations, no matter what we think of them, and contributed to the memory of the 215th anniversary of the Battle of Austerlitz, during a very limited program, mostly through individual participation, whether personal, on social media, or symbolic.AUSTERLITZ 2020 IS OVER - WE INVITE YOU TO AUSTERLITZ 2021
It was not possible to prepare the event for more than six people without trying to circumvent the current regulations in an undignified manner. We are going through a difficult period and we are probably still waiting for very uncertain times. With the sincere hope that the global problem will be solved in the foreseeable future by means that will no longer limit our lives to such an extent, we wish you all a peaceful Advent, a beautiful Christmas and all people of good will all the best in the new and hopefully better year.
We thank the South Moravian Region, the CzechTourism agency, other partners and long-term supporters of Austerlitz events, as well as those whose help we could not use this year (Explosia a.s., Cairo CZ); members of military history clubs from all over Europe. The villages of Tvarožná, Prace, Pozořice, Kučerov, also Únanov in the Znojmo region.
Austerlitz 2021, 216th anniversary of the Battle of Austerlitz, will take place on 1st - 5th December 2021.
We expect participation corresponding to this year’s plan, ie approximately 1500 participants from 15 countries, 100 horses, 20 guns, and a complete program including a commemorative event in Kučerov (December 1), fires on the Žuráň Hill (December 3), re-enactment of the Battle of Austerlitz on the battlefield under the Santon Hill at Tvarožná (December 4) and the act of piety at the Peace Monument near Prace (December 5).
This year’s plans for event canceled in the spring and later in the year (Ligny and Waterloo in Belgium, Marengo in Italy and others) are being transferred to 2021. At the same time we can look forward to the important 215th anniversary of the Battle of Jena (in October), but also, and probably above all, the 200th anniversary of Napoleon’s death (May 5, 1821), which will be commemorated by a series of commemorative events in Paris (including in September in Rueil-Malmaison, the 4th Jubilé Impérial). Austerlitz 2021 will therefore not only be a substitute for this year’s reduced program, but also an epilogue to another very important and attractive year in terms of the re-enacted Napoleonic history of Europe.
Long live the emperor according to your personal choice, and above all interest in common history
