"Smoking will be banned in virtually all public places in Slovenia starting on Sunday, under legislation adopted by parliament in June.
The new measures will enter into force at midnight on Saturday.
From then on, smoking will be banned in all public places, including hotels and restaurants except where they have installed special isolated smoking rooms.
Even then, patrons will not be able to enjoy a coffee and cigarette as the rooms are reserved exclusively for smoking, and all food and drink will be served in the common non-smoking area.
The sale of tobacco products to teenagers under 18 will also be banned.
Under the new legislation, if a restaurant or pub does not have a proper smoking room, customers will have to go outside to light up or face a fine of 125 euros (170 dollars) for smoking indoors."
