Reliving history

If you played with toy soldiers when you were little, if you are a history buff, or if you are looking to see (and learn) something different while visiting the Czech Republic, head to the town of Slavkov near Brno. Slavkov? Never heard of it? Maybe the town's German name, Austerlitz, rings a bell. In 1805, the town's surroundings witnessed the Battle of the Three Emperors, also known simple as the Battle of Austerlitz.
