DHA PhotoVisuals and photos of Cappadocia have not been used in public service ads by the Culture and Tourism Ministry, which aims to promote the use of Museum Cards, with tourism officials in Cappadocia voicing their discontent at the decision.
The Museum Card application was initiated by the ministry in 2008 and provides free visits to museums and ancient sites within one year.
During a statement the tourism officials in Cappadocia said the following: “If Cappadocia is really important for the ministry, we want the General Directorate of Promotion to take legal action against the person responsible for mistake this mistake. Cappadocia is not a simple value in Turkey; it has the traces of a world civilization that has hosted 20 different nations within the last 10,000 years.”
“The region is visited by more than 3 million people every year, but it is unbelievable that the officials of the General Directorate of Promotion are unaware of this region.

We want to learn the reason for why Cappadocia is not included in their promotional ads,” the statement read.
