Preparing for Wroclaw: Tips & Hints

1. If you plan to rent a car, it is recommended to take into account that it’s rather difficult to find a free parking space in the city. The majority of parking lots are paid, and so you must purchase a special parking ticket before you use them. These tickets can be purchased either from special agents or in special electronic machines.
2. In addition to the national currency some restaurants and shops may accept payments in U.S. dollars. As a rule, large shopping centers and restaurants also accept paying for goods by using wire transfer.
3. Currency can be exchanged in banks and special exchange offices only. The exchange rate in them may vary significantly. Private currency exchange is considered a serious crime, so in no case should you use the services of private individuals.

9. Tips in small cafes and restaurants are usually about 10% of the total bill. In large dining facilities fees may be already included in the total bill. As a rule, the amount of tips rarely exceeds 12% of the total order.
