3. A street is not a beach
Shops, parks, cafes, even if they are located 50 meters from the sea, are not suitable for walking in beach clothes. Do not appear in public places in this form, otherwise you risk incurring righteous wrath. Tourists walking around in elegant short swimming trunks are almost the main “red rag” for residents of resort towns.
4. Smile, you're on vacation
Don't be like “bzdykh”: this is what the locals call eternally dissatisfied guests who are not satisfied with everything – from the weather to the caliber of pebbles on the beach. It is not worth hinting aloud that in other countries or at other resorts the level of service is incommensurably higher, and the food is tastier, and the sea is cleaner, is also not worth it. It sounds arrogant and provokes backlash.
Do not think that every local resident is a boor and a businessman who sleeps and sees how he could cash in on tourists. Just remember: this is a resort, here the price and quality are not related to each other. Relax and have fun: some of the money will go anyway.
6. Don't forget where you are
Our south is not the Cote d'Azur at all, so you should not initially overestimate the bar of expectations. The Black Sea can be dirty and cold, the service is far from perfect, and you most likely will not see enchanting sights either. Although there are pleasant exceptions. Look for positive moments in your vacation – they are sure to be found even in Lazarevsky crowded with tourists.
7. Moderation is the head of everything
Bargaining fiercely for every penny in the local market is nothing worse for a tourist, and for a seller too. Of course, it is possible and even necessary to ask to drop the price within reasonable limits, but you should not enter into a lengthy debate about the quality of the goods and the inadequacy of requests. Otherwise, there is a great risk of running into a rude rebuke or even a conflict.
8. Be polite
Beach picnics with smoked fish, shrimp, pies and other victuals carried by vendors are a national sport for some tourists. The aromas of these snacks can be specific, and after a meal, small debris almost always remains. Just remember that other people are resting next to you (and in our south it sounds quite intimate in the season) other people are relaxing. It is better to go to a cafe for a bite to eat, and if this is not possible, still do not chew right under the noses of the neighbors.

9. Do not take risks in vain
In order not to spoil your opinion about Kuban wines and other alcoholic beverages for the rest of your life, do not buy anything on tap or in plastic bottles. Nothing and never. It is because of these surrogates that the opinion was created that there is no normal wine in our south. And it is there, only they sell it in special stores or wine boutiques. In addition to the disgusting quality and taste, dubious liquids from the “secret cellars of Prince Golitsyn” are tritely dangerous: they can poison you and remember a spoiled vacation for a long time.
