True.

Stick around. Sooner or later there will be a thread created about fake ID. Send some Euro's over and Bob's your uncle.

edit:

Maybe he / she should post a thread!

Stick to soft drinks. The age for buying alcohol in PL is 18 and shops are quite good about sticking to that.

buying alcohol in PL is 18

I always wondered who is charged in case a underage is sold alcohol? in states both the seller and the buyer is charged,to top it even if a fake id is shown still the seller is charged as he did sell to underage as well as the buyer.Same is the case with ciggerettes.

Using a fake ID card is certainly illegal here and a shop in Warsaw lost its alcohol licence for selling to minors a while back.

It is quite strict, I have been asked for ID a couple of times in fact and I am nearing 30. I am pretty sure that the charge will definately hit the shopkeeper and their license, however I am aware that it is an offense to attempt to buy alcohol while underage so the person buying could also be charged. It's also worth noting that a particularly strict shopkeeper could refuse you and then call the police/straz mieska with a description and they will be fine and you will be picked up.

Might be better off getting someone to buy it for you.

Marek. If you look 16 or even 18, most shopkeepers are going to card you. I see it all the time. Why not forget the booze and find the Lord Jesus instead? Just kidding. Ask a wino outside the night shop.

You mean the Czarny Kot? I'm pretty sure that closed down.
I think that place on Szczecinska is still open.
(My Mrs is from Slupsk and I lived there for a year).

No, this:slupsk.policja.gov.pl/adresy_kmp.php
Kids these days have no initiative.
