«Berezina 2019» — a large-scale historical reconstruction of the events of 1812

Green Park hotel complex offers to use the unique possibilities of accommodating participants of military and historical reconstruction clubs from Belarus, Russia, Poland, France and other countries during the massive reconstruction of the battle, which will be held as part of the festival dedicated to the events of the 1812 war.
The distance from the Green Park hotel complex to the place of reconstruction of the Battle of Brilevskoye Pole is about 60 km, we provide a round-trip transfer, comfortable accommodation in hotel rooms and wooden cottages.
We will also organise a visit to the reconstruction of the largest in the history of the wars of the Soviet army offensive operation Bagration, which was carried out in 1944 in Belarus. More than 2.5 million soldiers and officers from the USSR and Germany took part in the Bagration operation The distance from the Green Park hotel complex to the Stalin Line, the reconstruction site of Operation Bagration, is about 40 km.
Green hotel complex is located in a picturesque place, on the route of the French troops during the retreat, at the intersection of the trans-European motorway M1 / E30 and M2 Minsk - Minsk National Airport. Guests will be able to see the oaks seen by French and Russian soldiers in 1812.
We meet at the airport, arrange a transfer, accommodate in the Green Park hotel complex, deliver to the festival venue and back
Fights of cavalrymen and infantrymen, weapon volleys, the smell of gunpowder, puffs of smoke — festival battles are held on a large scale. Guests are given the opportunity to plunge into the atmosphere of those distant days, not only as spectators, but also direct participants in the events of the Patriotic War of 1812. They can, for example, temporarily retrain as a front-line surgeon and get a bullet out of a «wound», or try themselves as a blacksmith and forge a horseshoe.
Military history clubs and associations specialising in the reconstruction of costume, weapons, armor and equipment of the 19th century will take part in the “battle” by tradition. Participants in historical clubs will recreate the moment the Russian army pursued Napoleon’s troops, as well as the crossing of the Berezina River.
The festival becomes more and more large-scale every year. It was held in a new format last year and was not limited to reconstruction of the battle in Brilevskoye Pole historical complex. This is a parade of uniformists, members of military and historical reconstruction clubs from Belarus, Russia, Poland, France and other countries. The French side is always actively preparing for the event. This year the orchestra from France will come for the first time and the participation of musicians will become the decoration of the festival.
