Battle of Tapiobicske re-enacted

On 4th April in 1849, during the Hungarian revolution which broke out the previous year, after a long drawn-out struggle Hungarian troops finally managed to get across the river Tápió to defeat the Habsburg soldiers and take back the village of the Hungarian populated Tápióbicske.

On the 164th anniversary of the battle a historic re-enactment was organised. I previously wrote about my day long walk, but here are the pictures I took at the time.
