The price of the MÜZEKART museum card, which provides unlimited access to museums for a year, remained the same – only 60 lira (120 hryvnias). The card appears to be a very profitable purchase considering the updated price tag. However, it is not available to ordinary short-term tourists. It can be purchased by citizens of Turkey and Ukrainians who have residence permit.
