Huge success of the first Thermidor congress

“Thermidor” congress "Europe 1852." was hosted in the congress hall of the Vračar municipality headquarters, in Belgrade. The event took place from the 9th to the 12th December 2015 and was attended by 40 participants. The best performing team during the event was Prussia, led by David Vučinić, Stefan Stanimirović and Pavle Vučetić. They successfully removed all serious threats from within the German region (Austria lost Vienna, Bavaria was annexed by Saxony) and united the remaining German states into a German Federation, under the Prussian Crown. Prussian ambitions were fully fulfilled after they integrated the German Federation into a Confederation of Germania, with Scandinavian states as equal partners. The second best performing team was Russia, led by Pavle Veličković, Konstantin Magdić and Uroš Kusturić. Although they fell short from being the best performing team, their impact on Europe was equally significant. They fulfilled all of their historical goals by regaining Constantinople and forming the Third Roman Empire. Honourable mentions go to two minor powers: Denmark (Milorad Stevović) and Moldavia (Branislav Atanackov). Denmark claims the title of Scandinavian Sparta for successfully defending her lands against overwhelming odds. They drove back multiple simultaneous attacks from both German, and other Scandinavian states and managed to get international recognition of sovereignty on their territories, including Schleswig-Holstein. Moldavia claimed the title of Balkan Sparta for defending her territories from a large hostile coalition that included Russia. Moldavia managed to win against overwhelming odds and put Wallachia under her banner, with international recognition. The map depicting the new borders of Europe, as decided on the Congress of 1860 as well as detailed events preceding the Congress will be available soon.
