Day of Russian Students

The holiday was originally observed as the day when Empress Elizabeth, the daughter of Peter I, signed the Decree establishing Moscow University (now called Lomonosov Moscow State University), and later it became the holiday of all Russian students.

Many events for young people take place on this day, including open air concerts. Music clubs, concert halls, restaurants and museums offer big discounts to high school students on this day.
