It is better to specify in advance whether the staff at restaurants and cafes accepts tips. Tips may be included in the total at some restaurants, and there may be no tips accepted at certain dining establishments. Some restaurants prefer to cook food right in front of guests, and some restaurants even allow clients to go to the kitchen and choose the food they like.
All taxis have meters. Taxi drivers will also be grateful for a small reward. A tip of 0.5 – 1 euro is more than enough. It is also possible to round up the total to the nearest convenient amount.
It should be noted that some taxi drivers have nothing against tricking foreign tourists. They do not turn the meter on deliberately and tell the higher due sum. Such violations are prone to large fines, so clients should remember the car’s number and report the violation to the tourist bureau or the police.
Hotels and guest houses are equipped with standard European sockets. Line voltage is 220V. Large hotels have socket adapters on demand. It is also possible to purchase them in any specialized shop.
The cheapest way to make international calls is by using special telephone booths that are usually located close to public transport stops. Some of them accept credit cards, and some accept only special prepaid phone cards that are always available in newspaper kiosks.
