Whether Bulgarians will abide by the new law remains to be seen. Most people think that inspectors will swarm all over the country to check the enforcement  of the new regulation, but after two weeks everything will be back to where it was before.

Bulgaria has the highest rate of smokers in the EU, cigarettes are only half the price than in countries like Germany or the UK: a pack of Marlboro is € 2.56 / £ 2.06 / US$ 3.16
