03/02/27 Camp de Grande Armee – Finckenstein 1807
May 30 � June 1, 2003
Napoleon Bonaparte lodged in a palace of a Prussian notable, Graf zu Dohna, in Finckenstein (presently Kamieniec Suski), from April 1 to June 6, 1807. The site became a center of Napoleonic Europe for 2 months. Here the Emperor signed many important decrees (including that on formation of the Regiment of Light Cavalry of the Imperial Guard), negotiated with Persia and Turkey, received ministers and marshals, and visited soldiers in their winter camp. And the remains of the palace and its beautiful surroundings conceal the secrets of the fervent romance of Napoleon I and Maria Walewska. Now, inspired by Piotr Czerepak and Marcin Ochman and offered support by the Institute of the Studies on the Napoleonic Period in Pultusk and Gero Ltd.(owner of Finckenstein grounds), we have a unique opportunity to revive the spirit of the proud Grand Army: Napoleon�s regiments will camp again, like nearly two centuries ago, in the park surrounding the ruins of the Finckenstein palace between May 30 and June 1 this year.
The main purpose of the event is to promote and protect Finckenstein/Kamieniec site. And the re-enactment will become a perfect opportunity to make the general public aware of this historical location. Please, see our supporting site: www.napoleon.gery.pl for further details.
We expect arrival of numerous units from Poland and many other countries of Europe. The Finckenstein camp will feature militaria, such as historical tents, weapons and uniforms, and the names of its alleys will pay tribute to the great leaders and battles of the Napoleonic Empire. Further, we plan for marches, grand maneuvers, exercises in formation of rectangles, and demonstrations of military drill and skills. We will all get a sense of the enthusiasm and excitement that drove the Napoleonic army in 1807: Vive l’Empereur!
Every brave-spirited man or woman who cherishes the merits of honor and the fame the history owes to a true warrior is invited! You can count on an exciting once-in-a-lifetime kind event.

On 18 January 2003 at the Municipal Office in Tvaro�n�, representatives of military history clubs from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Austria serving on the C.E.N.S. steering committee established a non-profit, multinational organization, the Central European Napoleonic Society. This organization supports the values of modern European reenactment, and will follow up on the basic values in the area of training, gear, and weaponry that were until now represented by ENS. Therefore, a large majority of the founding members have belonged to ENS, or else they are currently cooperated with it or have done so in the past. C.E.N.S. is prepared to accept other military history clubs which will respect its rules and are sincerely interested in joining. C.E.N.S. currently brings together over 500 uniformed soldiers, who are organized in three basic military structures. The French are represented by the newly established by a demi-brigade, and the allies are represented by the Italian Army and the Allied Brigade. The statutes were adopted, and the management was appointed. Ivan Vystr�il, the vice-president of the Austerlitz 2005 project, was elected to serve as the first president of C.E.N.S. Other committee members are Petr L�zni�ka, Kamil Mad�ra, Ond�ej Tup�, and Romain Baulesch. This new organization is one of the largest of its type in Europe.

02/11/19 The open leter from Etienne Roda, president of the ENS
thank you for visiting this homepage and for your interest in the Battle of Austerlitz. We as ENS are delighted with the opportunity to take part in this really exciting Event. We will try to make a good impression of what happened in Napoleonic times at Austerlitz.
This Event is only made possible due to the immense work of enthusiasts in the organisation and to idealistic sponsors who deserve our thanks. The costs of such an Event will barely be covered by the small entrance fees alone. We will see Reenactment groups from Italy, southern France, England and even Malta. These are idealistic people who will gladly make the long journeys to be part at the Battle of Austerlitz.
These historical Events are remembering that important parts of European history happened in this area. The reconstitution of the Battle of Austerlitz with its enormous international attention will attract worldwide interest in the huge historical heritage of European culture conserved in the Czech Republic. It will also highlight the friendly people and gentle hospitality a visitor will find there.
Since the Battle of Loano 1795/1995 ,I have always considered it a privilege to have Bohemian and Moravian soldiers under my command. Today they are amongst the very best Napoleonic Reenactors worldwide and are splendid ambassadors of the European spirit which exists in their country.
I am happy that today we can help our Czech friends from so many Campaigns in Germany, Italy, Malta, Great Britain, France etc. over the last 10 years, to create a really excellent European Event of international reputation in their homecountry.
Salut et Fraternit�
G�n�ral de Division
