On May 24, 2023, on the Day of Slavic Literature and Culture, an online sightseeing tour of the Slovo Museum, VDNKh took place on the virtual site of the Russian House in Brussels.

During a tour of the exhibition at the Slovo Museum, visitors learned about the main milestones in the history of writing in Russia, about the first alphabets: Cyrillic and Glagolitic, got acquainted with the oldest literary works that have survived to this day.

During the tour, we saw the first handwritten books, wax tablets and birch bark manuscripts, and also learned how the monks worked by hand on the production of manuscripts.

We looked into the printing house to look at books from the time of Peter the Great and see a school class of the 19th century, all accompanied by fascinating stories of guides in Russian and English.
