In restaurants and cafes it’s customary to leave a tip, even if it is included in the total amount. In upscale places you can leave 5 to 10% of the order, and in small cafes and bistros $ 1 per person will be enough to tip. It is also appropriate to leave some cash to a taxi driver and a maid at a hotel.
Public transport is represented by buses and trams; using them you can get to any area of interest. Travelers, who expect to use public transport a lot, have to buy a special ticket. It is sold at all newsstands and post offices.
Taxis have to be called by phone or taken on special parking; it is almost impossible to stop a free car on the street. Two types of rates are used - day and night, the latter starts from 11:00 pm. On weekends and holidays the cost of taxi services may also increase.
Children, students and seniors are often given favorable discounts on excursions. To use them, you need to have necessary documents proving the status of beneficiaries. Exact requirements can be found in any tourist office.
