We present theoretical investigation of two-dimensional (2D) magnetophotonic crystal (MPC) with square lattice constructed from two infinite arrays of magnetoactive dielectric sheets at right angle, in the limit of very small sheet thickness and very high dielectric constant, such that their product is constant. Alteration of band structure by external magnetic field is studied. We show that optical activity reduces symmetry of the system and removes degeneracy in the photonic band structure. Also, despite of natural weakness of the magnetooptic activity, dispersion near band edges is found to be strongly sensitive to external magnetic influence.
