Prague

New year in Prague is never a low-key affair. There’s a bit of snow, clear skies ready to display the most gorgeous fireworks, champagne bottles popping up in the bars and restaurants, midnight cruises, and a romantic feeling in the air. No matter what time of the year, Prague is always worth visiting but when it comes to celebrating the New Year, it is the place to be in Central Europe. Here are some interesting ways in which one can celebrate Prague new years eve 2020.

New Year’s Eve Fireworks

The fireworks display takes the center stage in the New Year celebrations in Prague. It is a spectacle to behold. The best views are from the main square in the Old Town and Wenceslas Square. If one prefers a quiet time away from the crowd to enjoy the display, Charles Bridge or any of the Prague’s 14 bridges are a better option. Petrin Hill or the riverbanks, along with the wall of Kampa Park, also provide a good view. However, the grand firework display happens on January 1st at 6 PM while on the eve of the New Year amateur fireworks are set off by locals and event organizers. The sight of the sky lighting up above the Prague Castle is a sight to behold.
