A large part of local shops and shopping centers is open every day except Sunday. A usual working day starts at 10:00 and lasts until 19:00. Saturday can be a short working day. Some grocery stores work without weekends.
Large shops and supermarkets accept non-cash payments. A sufficient amount of cash is needed only to tourists who plan to make purchases in local markets and small private shops.
The most advantageous way to pay for your purchases is to use the national currency. Some shops of restaurants may accept euros and the U.S. dollars, but at an extremely disadvantageous rate. You can exchange money at a bank or in one of currency exchange offices. Please keep in mind that the closer an exchange office is located to a hotel, the less favorable rate and conditions of exchange it will provide.
Tips are not officially accepted in restaurants and cafes, but if you want to thank a helpful waiters, feel free to leave a small monetary reward. The tip of 5 - 10% of the total order will be enough. Visitors can also round off the amount indicated in the bill in a big way to any convenient sum.
