Prague New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Live Webcams, Parties, Hotels, Restaurants

Prague, Czech Republic, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Prague Castle by night

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, enjoys a burgeoning reputation as a party city, and crowds flock from across Europe to enjoy their New Years Eve party. As with most European capitals, the centre piece of the event in the midnight fireworks display, where Prague Castle provides an impressive backdrop, while popular viewing points for the countdown include the Charles Bridge, overlooking the River Vltava.

The city's reputation has suffered somewhat in recent years, with the stag and hen party craze leading to some less than ideal experiences, but it is a place more than big enough to accommodate most tastes and requirements, so with a little forward planning you shouldn't have too many problems avoiding the more rowdy crowds (unless of course that's what you're looking for!) and finding something to your personal tastes.

In terms of prices, although they have increased a little of late, Prague remains one of the more affordable European city break destinations, and with regular flights from budget airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair arriving all year round getting there shouldn't be too much of a problem either.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

Top NYE events in Prague tend to centre around seeing the fireworks, so when midnight arrives competition for the best vantage points can be pretty fierce. Most people try to head for anywhere on or overlooking the river, which generally means near the central Charles Bridge, Prague Castle or on Petrin Hill.

Still more crowds choose to just gather on the city's busy streets or the Old Town Square, while bars and restaurants with balconies with decent views tend to find spaces at a premium. Also, the many boats on the river gather close to the Charles Bridge just before midnight, so those on board can enjoy the best possible unhindered viewing platform.

In fact, talking a river cruise is one of the best options for seeing in the new year in Prague, and there are plenty of local boat companies offering this service. Praha Parnikem have a selection of new year cruise offerings, including live music, all inclusive dinners and of course the best fireworks views - details here.

Prague has in recent years developed something of a reputation as a party capital, drawing young visitors from across Europe to it's many lively bars and clubs, and this is reflected in the top notch NYE party selection. Top venues include the Mecca Club, Club Radost FX and Obcanska Plovarna, which has a great view over the Vltava river. Ticket details to follow.

For those of a more cultural inclination, then there are a fantastic variety of classical concerts to select from too. The biggest is probably the The Prague State Opera, and we'll provide their performance details for new years eve 2014-2015 as soon as we have them

Top parties in Prague for New Years Eve 2015 include those held at the Aloha Bar & Club in the Old Town Square, Vytopna Railway Restaurant in Wenceslas Square, Konirna Restaurant, U Mecenase Restaurant, U Ceskych Panu Medieval Restaurant, Novomestsky Pivovar Restaurant & Brewery and Bily Konicek Restaurant & Jazz Club.
