Preparing your trip to Bialystok: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. The city has a well-developed public transport system. It is easy to reach any landmark of Bialystok by bus, as well as neighborhoods of the city. As a rule, first buses appear on the streets on 5:30 am and work until late at night.
2. It is recommended to buy bus tickets in advance in kiosks that sell newspapers and tobacco. As a rule, tickets to «pospieszny» buses (express) are twice more expensive than to regular ones. At night (after 23:00), it can be two or even three times more expensive to use bus services.
3. Taxi services also have a different price depending on the time of a day. The daytime pricing usually lasts from 6:00 to 22:00. At night, the same taxi ride will cost nearly two times more.
4. Under no circumstance should tourists use the services of unmarked taxis that are always present near big hotels. There are quite many swindlers among these unofficial taxi drivers. In case a taxi doesn’t have a meter, it is important to negotiate the price of a ride in advance.
5. Tourists, who plan to rent a car, will need an international driver’s permit for that. Drivers under 23, as well as people, who got their driving license less than a year ago, might not be eligible for car rental services. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Don’t forget to leave tips in local cafes and restaurants. As a rule, a tip of 10% is enough. Some restaurants can have the service fee already included in the total.
