3. Tickets for public transport can be purchased at any tobacco shop - here they are the cheapest.
4. The city’s taxi is quite inexpensive, but rates may rise in the evening. It is better to call to a special service and get a taxi to a restaurant or a hotel as "catching" a free taxi on the road will be quite difficult.

That’s why the town doesn’t have a permanent burial ground, bodies are covered with the earth only for 10 years. After this period the bones of dead people are taken from the earth, blanched and transported in a local chapel. … Read further
