The law to ban smoking in public places takes effect on July 1 in Sweden, as the country moves in to meet its 2025 smoke-free country target.

Several outlets have already started preparations for Monday and acquired, among other things signs that clearly states that smoking in public spaces was prohibited.

The ban is set to ensure that smoking will not be allowed in bars, nightclubs, restaurants and other places.

Smoking in entrances to booths for smokers will also be banned.

Playgrounds and train station platforms have also been included as areas where smoking is not allowed.

Last year, there was a 142-120 vote in the Riksdagen that pushed the ban to start on July 1.

Hotels in some parts of the country have already stopped people from smoking in their outdoor bar seats.
