Facts

  • The column serves as a monument depicting Napoléan Bonaparte's victory over the Austrians and Russians at the Battle of Austerlitz in 1805.
  • The column is surrounded with reliefs showing Napoléon's victories over the Russians and Austrians by Denis Pierre Bergeret, hence the column's strong resemblance to Colonna Traiana in Rome.
  • 1,250 cannon captured at the Battle of Austerlitz were melted down to make the column which has a stone core.
