Tourists are recommended to purchase WelcomeCard, which gives you the right to get reduced fares in public transport. In addition to this, owners of the card receive a discount when they visit museums, restaurants and shops. It can be purchased in any hotel of the city, but note you should present your card only with ID.
Traveling around the city by car is quite difficult. There are not so many parking slots on its territory, and the majority of central streets are available exclusively for residents. Bicycle will become a great alternative to a car in this city.
Local motorists are not distinguished by good knowledge of traffic rules. Therefore, you should be especially careful while crossing roads.
The local beer houses have very peculiar customer service. As soon as a waiter sees that a mug of beer is empty, he immediately brings a new one to a visitor. In order to stop waiters, you should simply put a little paper holder, which is always present on every table, on your empty glass.
