Prague New Year's Eve 2015-2016

New Year's Eve 2015-16 in Prague » 31st December 2015

New Year's Eve in Prague is party night. The river cruises, restaurants, bars and clubs are full, and the atmosphere builds gently. As midnight approaches, revellers gather by the river, at the Old Town Square and at Wenceslas Square to watch fireworks.

New Year's Eve in Prague
Prague is a popular destination for New Year's Eve. The celebrations are enjoyed by one and all: the young and old, the quiet and romantic, the wild and carefree - there are entertainment options to suit all tastes.

Some people opt for restaurants offering an all-inclusive night of fine food, drinks and dancing. Others prefer a romantic candlelit dinner 'à deux'. Some revellers bar crawl and chance on finding a club after the fireworks. Others buy tickets for a party in a club or music bar. And finally, there are the ever popular river cruises: the Party Boat and the Jazz Boat.
Our Prague New Year's Eve Planner is the main guide to the festivities, featuring the best entertainment in the city on this special night: New Year's Eve Planner.

New Year's Eve Fireworks - Midnight
As midnight approaches, crowds gather in several areas of the city to watch fireworks. These are launched by various organisations, and many are set off by Czech revellers themselves!

Restaurants and river cruises time their entertainment programmes so guests can watch the fireworks - some provide Champagne for guests to celebrate with.

Broadly, there are two options for where to go to watch the fireworks. The first option is to head for somewhere overlooking the river: the top decks of the river cruises (which congregate at Charles Bridge), the banks of the river (the streets by the river, or on the terraces of the riverside and hillside restaurants), on or around Charles Bridge, or high up in the Lesser Town (by Prague Castle or on Petrin Hill).

The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, as people take in the beauty of fireworks over the water, with the backdrop of Charles Bridge and the Old Town on one side of the river, or Charles Bridge and Prague Castle / Lesser Town on the other.
The second option for the fireworks is to head for one of the main squares, either the Old Town Square (the most popular) or Wenceslas Square.

The squares are for the more adventurous! As the atmosphere builds, large crowds gather. Then, at the stroke of midnight it gets pretty hair-raising! Czechs LOVE setting off fireworks, and although there are aerial fireworks, many are handheld and fired off by the crowd. On the whole it's safe, but only just!

Prague is a terrific city for a New Year's Eve party. For more information: New Year's Eve Planner 2015-2016.

In addition to the New Year's Eve fireworks, Prague City Hall often puts on a display on New Year's Day at 6pm. This is aimed at families with children, but anyone can attend. These fireworks last for around 10 minutes. City Hall will confirm whether this will take place or not in 2015 around mid-December, and we will update this page accordingly.
