Special relativity is no more a new revolutionary theory but firmly established cornerstone of modern physics. The teaching of special relativity, however, still follows its presentation as it was unfolded historically, trying to convince subjects of this teaching that Newtonian physics is natural but incorrect and special relativity is its paradoxical but correct amendment. I argue in this article in favor of logical instead of historical trend in teaching of relativity and that special relativity is neither paradoxical nor correct (in the absolute sense of nineteen century) but the most natural expected description of real space-time around us valid for all practical purposes. This last circumstance constitutes a profound mystery of modern physics better known as the cosmological constant problem.
