The Borodino Battle Panorama Museum invites you to the Borodino Day Honor tour, dedicated to the central event of the Patriotic War of 1812, known in the West as Napoleon’s Russian Campaign – the Battle of Borodino.

The main exhibit of the museum is the Borodino panorama, one of the largest in the world. It depicts a general battle between the French and Russian armies. The circular canvas of the panorama (115 meters long and 15 meters high) was created by the outstanding artist Franz Roubaud for the centenary of the battle in 1912. The subject plan depicts the area and the ruins of the village of Semenovskoye, which, along with special lighting, creates a complete illusion of the event.

The tour is designed for a French-speaking audience, as well as those who are interested in France, its history and culture.
