Public Drinking in Prague Banned at some Places

carefully.... Since Monday the new public notice of the city hall come into operation. For most of us who, once in while, go to have a romantic bottle of wine while watching the sunset from Kampa Park there is a question we would like to know an answer to – will the new law be a tool against the homeless, or a tool against decent people?

Kampa park was the controversial park of the public notice, however the resolution was passed, so there is no alcohol drinking allowed since. The other places are the area at Narodni Trida around Tesco, the park in front of the main train station, at Petrin hill, at I. P. Pavlova square or at Karlovo namesti.

The parks that were spared of the ban are for example Letna and Stromovka by the Exhibition ground. The general places where drinking is banned in Prague are in areas around schools, medical facilities, metro stations, children playgrounds and bus/tram stations.

Meanwhile everyone probably agrees public drinking ban is necessary if we want to keep our metropolis at higher level, we are can but hope this law won’t be abused for repression, but used for getting rid of various unpleasant individuals.
