Catching a taxi on the street of the city is extremely problematic, so, if you need one, it’s better to call to order it beforehand. In case you plan to make a long-distance trip, discuss the price in advance.
2. If you plan to rent a car, you will have to present a credit card of any bank. Of course, you will also need a driver's license of international standard. Those, who have got the license less than a year ago, may be rejected to rent a car.
3. The majority of stores and shopping malls are open every day except for Sundays. Many stores close for lunch on daytime.
4. It’s normal to leave a tip in the local restaurants and cafes. The average amount of tip is about 5 - 10% of the total bill. It is worth noting that in many bills tips may already be included. In this case leaving a tip to a waiter is not required.
5. In order to save on attending exhibitions and cultural events, you can purchase special "city-card".
