A limited smoking ban was introduced in 1983 and has been updated several times since then. It prohibits smoking in cinemas, theatres, educational and healthcare establishments, shopping malls, restaurants, other workplaces and public transport. Smoking areas or rooms are allowed in all places. (see http://data.euro.who.int/tobacco/pdf/ForPDF10.pdf)
