Of all the countries, of all the cities, who knew Prague was the second best place to spend New Year’s? At least according to Pubclub.com, a leading nightlife website, which ranked our city just behind New Orleans, largely due to what they call a national tendency towards pyromania. It’s this Czech obsession with fireworks that makes the city literally explode on New Year’s Eve.
Not to mention, the countless beautiful places to witness this explosion. Old Town is deemed an “adventurous” site due to so many amateur fireworks. For a more refined but cheesy location make sure to check out Charles Bridge or anywhere that lets you see the river. Also try Prague Castle, or the “Stalin Statue”. Cliché and touristy, yes, but hey it’s New Year’s, and if you can’t make it to another destination why not act like you’re visiting Prague just for the night.
If that doesn’t sound appealing, check out the endless nightlife choices, offering everything from classical music to Central Europe-style reggae, from posh clubs to Batman parties. We’ve highlighted 10 we felt encompassed the spectrum from the cliché to the obscure.
For a more sophisticated experience enjoy a New Year’s Eve gala. Earlier in the night, choose from three different luxury dining courses ranging from the Grand Ballroom at CZK 6,850 CZK per person to the Restaurant Essensia at 7,600 CZK per person.
The cover is steep but it features Brazilian and Cuban dancers and six DJS on two floors.
