New law about smoking in Czech Republic

With new year comes new law. Now is in Czech Republic prohibited to smoke in schools, sports halls, cinemas, theatres, offices of the state administration, train platforms and at tram and bus stops.
Last two named places are defined as shelters and pavement or sidewalk where in front of that is on the road painted signs for bus/tram stop.

On the other hand is no longer prohibited smoking in restaurants and pubs during lunch time. Instead of the owner of pub/restaurant has to have extra place for non-smokers.
