Smokers love the Czech Republic, as unlike in just about every other EU country, there aren’t any strict smoking laws. Current legislation leaves it up to individual establishments whether to be allow smoking or not, but they do need to have a sticker on their front door indicating if they are smoking, non-smoking or both. Many restaurants will offer a non-smoking section, but don’t assume that means a separate room; sometimes smokers get one half, non-smokers get the other half of the same room. In public buildings like train stations, metro stations, shopping centres, etc., smoking is prohibited, as well as at tram and bus stops. In our guide we have marked those places which are completely non-smoking with the appropriate symbol.
