These revenues increased by 31 million compared to 2018," the press service of the Kyiv City Council informs.

According to Chairwoman of the Standing Committee on Culture Viktoria Mukha, tourism in the capital is actively developing as evidenced by the increase in the number of tourists visiting Kyiv and the city budget revenues.
