01 September 2021
With this card, young people aged 14 to 22 will be able to purchase tickets to theaters, museums and concert halls using funds from the federal budget.
Pushkinskaya Card is a special bank card for young people that can be used to pay only when buying tickets for cultural events. The state will send money to the account of such cards. In 2021, on the balance of every card there will be 3,000 rubles. Next year the amount will be increased.
According to Konstantin Sukhenko, the Chairman of St. Petersburg Committee for Culture, “the procedure of obtaining the card is such that you need to download the mobile application “Culture.Gosuslugi”, then to select events from the list added there. Our city is represented by leading theaters, museums, concert and exhibition halls. Together we have chosen the most attractive events and will constantly add new ones”.
The guide of events which can be visited using the Pushkinskaya Card is published on the portal "Culture.ru".
