Amsterdam is a city that you have to visit once in a lifetime and why not in the New Year’s Eve. And you probably know that it’s one of the most popular cities for NYE celebrations. Whether you want to celebrate it in a club or a bar or outside, on a square you will have a great time. One of the most popular clubs for NYE is the Gashouder.
Of course, everything is cheaper when you’re celebrating on a square, so you can visit Nieuwmarkt, Leidseplein or Rembrandtplein, have fun and wait for awesome fireworks. And it’s perfect if you like meeting new people from around the world.
Another gorgeous city that is usually quite expensive, but you can do pretty cheap for NYE if you’re into great outdoor celebrations and fireworks. The sky in London really lights up in the midnight and makes the skyline even more beautiful. And imagine stepping into the new year with the Big Ben ticking the background noise.
Great, right. Also, if you want to experience some NYE clubbing in London and not spend much money doing that check out Belushi’s bar in London Bridge, you will have fun, for sure. Also, you can’t miss traditional New Year’s Day Parade in Hyde Park with over 8.500 artists from around the globe.
Moscow is very cold in the winter but if you want to experience something really special it is worth it. Just get yourself a warm coat and boots and you’ll be fine. Believe it or not, Moscow is considered to be one of the cheap places to visit for NYE. It is so amazing no matter when you go there, but just imagine the Red Square lit up with all that fireworks amazing for sure. Or visit Gorky Park, you’ll get to skate on one of the largest skating rinks and enjoy a party with multiple DJs.
Have you ever celebrated NYE on the beach. If you’ve thought about doing that this year we recommend going to Barcelona. Go to Placa Catalunya and experience some unique traditions such as midnight bottle toss that happens at midnight. Or you can go to the main event near the Magic Fountain and that’s where the equally or even more magical fireworks is happening. After that, you can go to the Gothic Quarter and spend the first few hours of the New Year bar crawling.
As we already mentioned, Bratislava is pretty underrated but it’s a perfect city for the New Year’s city break, especially if you are more of a family person and you are taking your kids with you. This adorable medieval city offers so much fun starting from the midday on the 31st. The whole city turns into a great family part.
And don’t you worry, it gets more serious and mature and you will see cool fireworks at the city squares and if you prefer celebrating in a bar or a club you won’t be disappointed.
If you are more of a romantic person, we recommend celebrating NYE in Venice and sealing it with a kiss the annual communal kiss is a tradition here. Go for a dinner cruise with delicious Italian dishes and candlelight and after that it’s party time. Visit Riva degli Schiavoni, Riva Ca’ di Dio, Riva San Biagio, or Riva dei Sette Martiri or Saint Mark’s square and enjoy beautiful fireworks. And if you want to continue the party after that you can go to one of the Venetian pubs, since there are no clubs. Or if you want your night to stay more romantic choose a gondola ride with your loved one.
