Borodino Panorama Museum

The battle of Borodino is regarded as the bloodiest of the Napoleonic wars, seeing over 70,000 casualties in a single day, an event which saw Napoleon brand the Russians as being 'invincible'. The Borodino Panorama Museum was inaugurated in 1960 and serves as an exhibit of artefacts and displays from the Napoleonic wars, from their beginnings to inevitable conclusion. The panorama referred to in the name is, incidentally, not an outdoor view but a 360º painting depicting a crucial moment in the battle itself.
