All urban areas have kiosks which are open for longer than the shops or even for 24 hours a day. A large number of bread shops (bakeries) stay open until 23:00. The kiosks sell cigarettes, soft drinks, mineral water and magazines and newspapers, etc., and the bakeries sell bread, other bakery products and milk and dairy products, etc.

An order of the Minister for Labour and Social Insurance designates tourism areas, and in those areas the shops adhere to the tourism system of opening hours which allows for longer opening all through the week and for Sunday opening.

In the Christmas period, which begins on 12 December and ends on 30 December, and the Easter period, which begins 10 days before Easter Sunday, the shops are open for longer.
