Preparing for Utrecht: Tips & Hints

1.Most shops are open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm; Sunday is a common day-off. Saturday and Monday are half-days, so the timetable of places of interest should be specified in advance.
2. Mains voltage is 220 V; however, many modern hotels provide additional outlets for 110 V and 120 V. Tourists are advised to bring necessary adapters for electrical devices with them.
3. Despite the fact that telephone booths begin to disappear from city streets, they can still be found in busy tourist areas, close to major supermarkets and entertainment places. Street pay phones are the best option for long-distance and international calls; they accept special plastic cards.

4. You should pay for goods and services exclusively in euros; other currency is not accepted. Travelers are advised to exchange money at home before the trip, as in this case terms would be the most profitable. It’s also worth noting that small shops and supermarkets are reluctant to accept banknotes in denominations above 50 euros, so it’s better to take enough of small bills.

5. Dinner at a local restaurant starts early, at 6:00-7:00 pm. You can leave a tip for a good service; it is generally between 10-15% of the total order.
6. The main mode of urban transport is a bus. A two-wheeled transport is also in demand of locals and tourists. Those who expect to visit nearby towns are recommended to travel by high-speed trains, as it would be much faster and more convenient than by buses.

7. Opposite the Dome Cathedral there is an excellent tourist office where you can get all the information you need. Here you can book a guided tour, take a map of the city and booklets describing local attractions, as well as purchase phone cards and a lot of other useful items.
8. Most museums and cultural institutions provide favorable discounts for younger guests. Fans of excursions have to consider that many cultural centers are closed on Mondays.
