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.

Letting off the fireworks from a pontoon between Střelecký Ostrov island and Charles Bridge have led in the past to traffic disruptions.
