The Museum “Borodino Battle” is located in the historical area of Moscow, where many significant events took place in 1812 , the year when the French troops under the command of Napoleon stepped into Moscow. It was not for the faint of heart for the Russian army to make the French abandon the capital, but thanks to the skilful operations of the Russian commander Kutuzov it did manage to save the city and the whole country . The panoramic canvas shows the battle and the terrain effects, as well as the skilful use of theatrical lighting and sound, which helps to create a powerful illusion of space.
