Despite the fact that local restaurants and cafes provide visitors with a rich selection of alcoholic beverages, the locals are quite modest when it comes to drinking alcohol.

No need to say that these entertainments are mostly targeted at travellers. However, some elements of holidays remained unchanged - colorful costumes and masks, which tourists usually buy as souvenirs.
