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!
Here are some great ways to say goodbye to another year while in Prague!
Walk around the Christmas Market in the Main Square – open until January 6th
Go up the Astronomical Clock Tower & look down on the Christmas Market – open until 2pm on Dec 31st.
