*April 15 is the International Day of Culture. The holiday was established in honor of international treaty "On the protection of artistic and scientific institutions and historical monuments” adoption on April 15, 1935. The Treaty played an important role in the further formation of international legal norms and public activities in the field of cultural heritage protection. The initiative to mark the date of signing the pact as the International Day of Culture was made in 1998 by the International League for the Culture protection, established two years earlier by the International Center of the Roerich.
