On May 24, 2014 at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture will celebrate the Day of Slavic Written Language and Culture.

The holiday is inseparably linked to the honouring of Saints Cyril and Methodius, — the authors of the Slavic alphabet. The written language, created by the two brothers, had an enormous effect on the development of Russian Literature.
