Where to watch the fireworks in Prague New Years Eve
New Year’s Eve in Prague is characterised by its extravagant fireworks display, visible across the city.
Several firework displays are organised for midnight on New Year’s Eve, when revellers can choose to brave the cold and watch them from one of the bridges over the river, or select a warm bar or restaurant that overlooks the waterway.
Top spots to get a good view of the brightly coloured displays include the Charles Bridge or Prague Castle. Many of the river boats also take tours out, offering an unusual option for New Year’s tourists.
People staying in Prague hotels will be up until the early hours of the morning celebrating the New Year with the locals.
More adventurous tourists may want to spend midnight in one of the city’s famous squares. In both the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, locals gather to set off their own fireworks and see the New Year in with style.
Those travelling with small children do not have to miss out on the fun. A fireworks display also takes place on New Year’s Day at 18:00 local time. Any little angels that did not stay up for the evening’s festivities can watch the spectacular aerial display.
Visitors can get the best views from the city centre or the riverside, as the fireworks are set off from Letna, on the Prague Castle side of the capital.
