The name of the town of Waterloo is familiar to anyone whodidn’t skip history classes in school too often.
Naturally, all the historical monuments and sights of the town are related to the great battle. The epochal battle that ended for Napoleon in abdication and his exileon St. Helena.
In honor of the legendary battle, ten years later, a mound topped with a sculpture of a copper lion, threateningly looking towards France, was poured. The sculpture was castout of re-melted cannons of the French army, which is one of the symbols perpetuating the great victory.
It is worth to visit the 110-meter Panorama – a picture in the shape of a ring, in the center of which you will feel like you’re in the middle of the action.
The city often hosts military and historical festivals, during which tourists have a chance to see the “battle” with their own eyes. The staging of battles is improved with every year.
Naturally ,there’s plenty of museums in Waterloo as well. For example, the Wellington Museum, where you can learn a lot of details of the battle, the wax museum, the Napoleon museum. You can also visit the Hougoumont castle and the Haie Sainte farm, where the most fierce moments of the battle took place.
