Description At the occasion of bicentennial of discovery of Antarctica in 1820, the paper addresses the legal framework applicable to this ice-covered continent. Territorial claims of several countries met the rejection of international community. Countries involved in Antarctic polar research gradually established Antarctic Treaty System for its management.
