WARSAW, Poland — Poland's ban on smoking in public places such as stadiums and restaurants went into effect Monday, despite worries by some that it may be overly strict.

The ban calls for fines of up to 500 zlotys ($165) for those who break the regulations. But it allows for a special room to be set aside for smokers as long as it is well ventilated.

Smoking is now banned in schools, museums, theaters, airports and railway and bus stations and in public transport, stadiums, hospitals and playgrounds. It is also banned in one-room restaurants and bars.
