"The Heritage of Saints Cyril and Methodius in the modern world" realized by Taganrog Foreign Relations Office and Taganrog School Number 5 became an international project in 2013. The meaning of "heritage" is not limited to Orthodox background of Slavic missionaries, and focuses on the Cyrillic alphabet. This is why the subject scope was very wide, ranging from Christianity to linguistics. The forms of participation were also very different: drawings, photographs, essays, research studies, scenarios of Saints Cyril and Methodius' Day Celebrations, videoconferencing ("video bridge"), and many more.

The first project was realized in 2009 and became an international event in 2013. In 2020, the students of Luleburgaz Bilsem Gençlik Mh. Gunes School Nr. 17 from the city of Kirklareli, Turkey participated for the first time, showing their great enthusiasm.
