Has anyone ever been to Borodino in Russia? I'm particularly interested in Napoleon and French history and thought about visiting it when I'm in Moscow this summer. However I'm not sure if there's anything actually there - i.e. is it just a field now - or how one would go about getting there. It's pretty hard to find information about it because whenever you type "Borodino" in google it just brings up a whole load of stuff about the battle but not a great deal about what Borodino is now, or if there's a museum there etc. Any help is appreciated.
