Borodino Day 2013
August 31, 2013 13:45


International  Military History Festival "Borodino Day" dedicated to 201-st anniversary of the Battle of Borodino will be held on September 1, 2013. Every year, on the first Sunday of September the anniversary of the Battle of Borodino is celebrated on a large scale at Borodino Field.

Tens of thousands of people come to Borodino to perceive their involvement in the heroic past of Russian State. Reenactors of military and historical events, members of military history clubs from Russia, former Soviet republics and other foreign countries arrive to the Borodino Field a few days before.

Infantrymen, grenadiers, artillerymen, lancers, hussars, cuirassiers and dragoons of Russian and Napoleonic armies of 1812 deploy themselves in two bivouac shelters respectively. A day before, on Saturday, they do a dress rehearsal.

On Sunday the festival traditionally begins with solemn ceremonies at command posts of M. I. Kutuzov in the village of Gorki and of Napoleon at Shevardino village.  Saluting military honors to heroes of Borodino and laying of wreaths – the official part of the festival - takes place at the main monument on Raevsky Redoubt.

The festival culminates with reenactment of military episodes of the Battle of Borodino. On this day, annually more than 100,000 people from Russia and other countries interested in military history of Napoleonic Wars gather together at Borodino.
