6. Approximately once a month bulky and large items are allowed to be thrown in the city. On the evening prior to that day locals start bringing unwanted furniture, appliances and other unnecessary items to the streets. Many townspeople make a search trying to find the things they need. It is worth noting that attending such event is not considered shameful. Antiques collectors will surely find it very interesting as there are many old items among the things left by locals.
7. There are many centers of bike rental in the city. This two-wheeled transport is very popular here. There are special parking slots near all major shopping centers and government agencies. Bicycle paths run along all major routes, making travelling here even more enjoyable and simple.
