Martin is a large Catholic country in central Europe. The water that runs into this country is heavily contaminated. The problem is so serious that the government ordered a ban on the sale and consumption of tap water. This means that people will have to buy bottled water or use other sources that are considered safe. The whole region was affected by the order, and people have been found hiding bottles of tap water
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
