Description of Slavkov Castle

Slavkov Castle was found in the 13th century by Teutonic Knights. Slavkov Castle was first mentioned in 1237. Parts of an original building and circular stairwell in the tower is all that remains from the original building. During the reign of Ulrich III of Kaunitz, a new remodeling gave a medieval citadel its Renaissance appearance. Slavkov Castle became a famous meeting place between Napoleon, emperor of France, Alexander I emperor of Russian Empire and Francis I Emperor of Austria after the Battle of Austerlitz that was fought on December 6th, 1805. It was one of the most stunning victories of the Napoleon Bonaparte. There is a small historic museum devoted to the battle.
