Suvorov 220 Project

Later this year is the anniversary of this event and a group of Russian historians are doing a historical trekking adventure aimed to repeat the rout of Suvorov's troops over Swiss Alps in September-October 1799.

'This year is 220 anniversary of the event, and we raise an international group of enthusiasts (not necessarily reenactors), who are willing to march all the 170 km way in historically correct kits of the Russian line infantry or jagers'
