    In Slovenia, smoking is banned in all closed public and work premises, in other words including catering and accommodation establishments. You must be at least 18 years old to buy tobacco products. This makes Slovenia one of the European countries with the strictest limits on smoking.

    Heavy fines

    In practice, the law is being respected well. There are practically no premises where smoking is allowed, since there is the threat of heavy fines, especially for the owner, tenant or manager of premises that must impose the smoking ban.

    Companies can be fined between 2,000 and 33,000 euros for violations, sole traders between 800 and 4,000 euros and the responsible person in a company from 400 to 1,000 euros.

    A penalty of 125 euros must be paid by an individual who smokes in a place where it is banned.

    Smoking rooms

    The exception envisaged in the law is smoking rooms. These are closed spaces that are physically separate and arranged especially for smoking. Waiter service is not permitted in smoking rooms, and no food or drink can be consumed in them. The smoking room must be arranged so no air carrying tobacco smoke can flow into another room.

    ID checks in shops

    When you buy tobacco products, the vendor may ask you to prove your age by showing your ID or personal document. If you refuse, you cannot be sold the product. The same applies for purchasing alcoholic beverages in Slovenia, where only those 18 or over can buy alcohol.
