New Year’s fireworks to be launched from Letná next year

17-09-2013

Prague’s traditional municipal New Year’s fireworks show will this year be launched from the city’s Letná Park rather than from the previous location on the River Vltava, under a plan approved by councilors on Tuesday. Following a discussion on when exactly the New Year’s Day event should be held, the time of 18:01 won in a public vote. Letting off the fireworks from a pontoon between Střelecký Ostrov island and Charles Bridge have led in the past to traffic disruptions.
