Fenyx Club Represents in Austerlitz and Bratislava

Pavel Kral, our friend from our cousin club: Fenyx Petanque club in the Czech Republic sent me photos of two huge petanque tournaments he (and his wife Renca, and little daughter Alenka, and friend Jirka) attended. One was in Austerlitz (Czech Republic) and the other in Bratislava (Slovakia) near Vienna (Wien).

By the magnicent grounds they played upon, I can see it is a royal experience playing petanque in Eastern Europe. I hope some day soon I can travel to Prague and stop over at the Fenyx club to play in these very elaborate places.

One of Napoleon's greatest victories took place near Austerlitz. In December, 1805, Napoleon's French army defeated a unit of the Russo-Austrian army (commanded by Tsar Alexander I) after nearly nine hours of difficult fighting. The battle took place near Austerlitz (Slavkov) in today’s Czech Republic.
