Top Attractions to See in Prague (on New Year's Eve) - New Year's Eve in Prague, Czech Republic - Top Things to do in Prague - Must-sees in Prague - California Globetrotter

Another year has come and gone and 2015 was such a great year, we really wanted to go out with a BANG so we headed straight to the capital of the Czech Republic for some good ol’ fireworks, chaos and fun!

With less than two weeks until the big night, we finally booked a hotel in Prague for the night after doing some serious research into the firework show to welcome in the New Year. We were hesitant at first, after having spent NYE in Budapest, Hungary in 2013 and being let down by absolutely NO professional firework show.

Before the count down to the final minutes could begin, we spent the entire day re-visiting some of the touristy hot spots for some new pictures, Czeched out the Christmas Markets throughout town which are open until January 6th, ate some amazing traditional Czech cuisine and froze our pattooties off!

  1. Beautiful photos! I spent NYE once in Budapest too and I was disappointed about the lack of fireworks, but it was still the best NYE I had 🙂 Your photos have reminded me how much I miss Prague, I’m dying to go back!

  2. We have just spent New Years Eve in Split in Croatia it was wonderful lots of fireworks, not just the professional ones but the whole town gets into the spirit. Your photos of Prague are beautiful…we spent some time there last year , it is one of my favorite cities.

    1. Unfortunate my firework pictures for Prague don’t do it justice – it had also started to snow just before midnight so many of the pictures are blurry but the city put on the show and other people had their own fireworks so it was kind of like we were surrounded by fireworks all simultaneously going off – We were in Split over summer so I can imagine how wonderful it was there!

  3. Happy new year, you certainly celebrated it with a bang! What a wonderful place to see in 2016. It must have felt so festive with the markets and the stunning arhitecture of Prague. Thanks for linking up with #MondayEscapes

  4. Great post and beautiful pictures 🙂 Lovely to see again some of the same sites we visited. I can only imagine how beautiful (and cold!) it must have been on NYE 🙂
