This date became a national holiday after the Serbian government adopted a bill amending the Law on State and Other Holidays in the Republic of Serbia, Blic recalls.

"This holiday will mark Day of Slavic Literacy and Culture, which was founded by Slavic educators Cyril and Methodius, the founders of Slavic literature and the creators of the first Slovic script - Glagolitic," the government said earlier.

Even though it is celebrated, the new state holiday is a working day.
