Alcohol and smoking

Consumption of any alcoholic drinks in public places is prohibited (beer as well!). They are to be consumed in bars etc, only (the fine is up to $120). One does not have to drink alcohol to be considered as an offender, as preparations for drinking alcohol (e.g. pouring it into glasses) are also considered to be consumption.

We don't recommend you to appear in the streets being heavily drunk. If police officers decide you disturb the public peace, they may put you into a medical detoxication center.

Smoking is prohibited in most of the public places: sports grounds, bus and train stations, airports, underpasses, public transport, Niezaliežnasci square, Horky Central Park, Botanical garden (the fine is up to $60).
