Zámek Slavkov in Slavkov u Brna

Zamek Slavkov in Moravia, Czech Republic

Zámek Slavkov (Slavkov Castle) got famous for being the site where the armistice between Austria and France was signed on Dec 6th, 1805. At that time the place and the mansion was known by the name Austerlitz. Taking a guided tour I had the chance to see not only the interior of the Baroque building but also the room where the armistice was signed.
