    More than 1,500 “cavaliers” participated in a large-scale historical re-enactment of the Napoleonic-era battle on the Borodino field in the Moscow region, Russia, during the annual Borodino Day festival on September 3.

    Guests from Great Britain, France, Germany, Belarus and Czech Republic attended this year's event.

    The Battle of Borodino was fought in 1812 during the Napoleonic Wars when the French invaded Russia. The fighting involved around 250,000 troops and left at least 70,000 casualties, which is why it is considered one of the bloodiest Napoleonic battles and one of the deadliest one-day battles in history.

      One of the most iconic travel images of the modern age is that of a dog hanging its face out of the open window of a car. Moreover, the speed of the vehicle is not important: during traffic jams, our four-legged friends study the surrounding cars with interest, and on the highway they seem to catch the wind with their mouths.
