This holiday promotes Ukrainian customs and ancient traditions, including traditional clothing, among young people and all the citizens. An embroidered shirt is a genetic code of strength, prosperity, beauty and charms, and a symbol of belonging to the blood and the nation, which unites the Ukrainians regardless of the language they speak, religion or political beliefs. On the Vyshyvanka Day people always smile and exude joy. Today, the employees of the National Kyiv-Pechersk Historical and Cultural Preserve have participated in the All-Ukrainian Flashmob and have come to work in traditional Ukrainian embroidered clothes – shirts and dresses decorated with Ukrainian embroidery, to mark the unity of society that is ready to develop and defend the country, history and traditions. At 2.00 pm everyone gathered together at the Cathedral Square to make a group photo.

The theme of this year's International Museum Day is “Museums and Cultural Landscapes”, which once again draws attention to the fact that museums can be authors of new research in the field of cultural heritage and active institutions in the protection and conservation of cultural values both inside and outside their walls. In these difficult times for our country, Ukrainian museum workers, more than ever, have to unite their efforts to preserve national cultural heritage and cultural landscapes, because cultural landscape is a human space, a complicated co-cultural system, a cultural identifier of communities live here by determining their special features, specific nature and identity.
