Day of Slavic Writing and Culture

On May 24, 2021, an open class dedicated to the Day of Slavic Writing and Culture was held at the Pre-University Training Faculty. Today, all Slavic countries commemorate Saints Cyril and Methodius, who played a prominent role in developing Slavic writing and culture.

At the beginning of the open class, foreign students learned more about the history of the Cyrillic Alphabet, which was named after one of the brothers. The student from Bulgaria noted that, in her home country, there exists the same holiday.

During the course of the class, the students saw the first Slavic alphabet, read the basic facts about the history of its creation, and also compared the Glagolitic alphabet with the Cyrillic one. 

The audience got specifically interested in the copies of the texts written by various well-known cultural and scientific figures. 

Last but not least, Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin’s notes about the Russian language were read out along with his small poems.
