Culinary traditions of the city are full of kind and warm rituals. It is worth noting that many national dishes, which have been prepared for centuries by the locals for various holidays, may seem to be true delicacies to visitors. Previously roast venison with cranberry sauce was the most popular delicacy of the region. However, today you can try it despite the season as the dish is served in all luxury restaurants of the city as the best national delicacy.
Hospitality and good nature of local residents are definitely worth a separate mentioning. Serious attitude to religion remains one of distinctive features of their character. Even local children are perfectly familiar with the local religious traditions and regularly visit churches and cathedrals with their parents. The majority of residents adhere to Catholic religion, but their attitude to other religions can be described no other way than restrained. They will never criticize the customs of people of another culture, but will never tolerate criticism towards their beliefs. Any awkward word about the local customs and lifestyle of the citizens of the city can really hurt them. However, they will not show this because of their restrained and patient character.
