It is worth noting that at night public transport (from 11 pm to 5 am) functions a little bit differently than during the day. Night bus lines, always prefixed with an “N”, run less frequently than the day ones. Most buses take off from Central Railway Station every 20, 30 or even 60 minutes! As to a ticket tariff – it is the same as usual.
