Spending the New Year in Prague is a fantastic idea. The city is bustling with festive spirit and the Christmas markets are still open through the holiday.
Of course, planning such a trip comes with a few questions. So I've come up with a few tips and some general advice to make the most of your trip for New Year's eve.
The following details are meant to inform you, not scare you away ;-)
It’s up to you how you will experience the different sides of the city during this vibrant and fun time.
For a lot of people, just being outside when the clock strikes midnight is a special event. The city's beauty and atmosphere takes care of New Year's eve on its own.

New Year in Prague
Fireworks! Oooh! Aaah!
The city's official fireworks display is at 6 pm on 1 January 2018. They are launched from Letna Park which is on the north side of the city above the Vltava River - near the metronome.
There are many good places to view the fireworks. Any of the central bridges are worthy spots, but can be crowded. We like to find a place in Petřín park.
Prague is busy, crowded and a bit crazy during the New year period. It's the most popular time of the year for visitors.
I suggest finding an event indoors to celebrate the actual midnight celebration.
