The Siege of Bratislava, AD 1809
The beautiful capital of Slovakia hosts each year the reenactment of the Siege of 1809. In Janka Kráľa city park on the Petržalka bank of the Danube River, history fans return to the year 1809 to witness the great siege of Bratislava when the French army of Emperor Napoleon clashed with the Great Hungarian army at the site. The siege of the city, called Pressburg at the time, lasted for more than a month, but Bratislava was not conquered and Napoleon suffered his first defeat.
The event is organized by The Slovak Association of Military History and Historical Weapon Shooters and allows visitors to assist to the battle reenactment, explore the military camp life with displays of daily activities and the reconstruction of the field hospital where they can learn how wounded soldiers were treated and how surgeries were in that period. Moreover, the visitors can admire replicas of historical arms, canons and period uniforms.
