About
Visit the legendary battlefield of the two Patriotic Wars where Napoleon's Grand Armee fought its deadliest single-day battle against the Russian Army in 1812 and where in 1941 the German troops were rushing towards Moscow. Borodino field is dotted with dozens of monuments and fortifications. There's also a small but noteworthy museum displaying artefacts and artworks related to 1812. The itinerary is totally flexible, explore everything at your own pace. I'm not a licensed guide so I'll rather be your driver and travel companion on that trip providing all the essential information and assistance. This tour can be combined with visiting the tank museum in Kubinka and the Patriot park which house an extensive collection of German and Soviet armour. My car is a Subaru Outback comfortable for 3 passengers (but can accommodate 4).

Really excellent historical day tour of 1812 and 1941 Borodino battlefields
Oct 2019 • Friends
Definitely the high spot of a week in and around Moscow. One could probably spend several days at this very large and unspoiled site which is more or less preserved from the time of 1812. Nikolay does a really excellent job of driver/guide, and we ended up seeing a good balance of our own ideas/sites and his, basically there is a lot to see. The battlefield museum is well worth a visit. Monuments everywhere, reflecting the enormous losses, the original 1812 earthworks still in place and accessable, with very few other people around (which is a plus for me), walking into and onto the Bagration fleches and the redoubts, one gets a feel for the scale, and particularly fascinating were the Red Army positions, trenches, pillboxes and so on which formed part of the Moscow defence lines in 1941. Again, you can walk into, along, inside 1941 pillboxes and trenches, built in some cases into exactly the same place as the redoubts and earthworks of 1812. How cool is that?! Everything still preserved and a surprise round every corner. The countryside and woodlands are again mostly left as was and very beautiful. Historically a must visit, and Nikolay is a great guide. I'ld recommend at least a full day at Borodino. You won't be disappointed.
