Roads and cars

Every family has at least two cars, mostly French brands, but there are also “Japanese” and “Germans”. The roads are good even in the provinces, many highways are paid.

It became popular among local residents to arrange joint trips to nature or to the theater — this is called kovuatürage. Two families travel by one car, for example, to a nearby town for a fair, and next weekend, parents of a family drive their children on a tour.

In the provincial towns ply small buses, often free. They are mainly used by older people. The best way to get to another city is by bus or high-speed train TGV. There are special low-cost bus trains on the railways.
