New Years Eve Fireworks Prague 2019


Tuesday 1. 1. 2019 from 6 p.m.

Prague will welcome New year 2019 with traditional fireworks, January 1 from 6 p.m.

 

Prague´s New Year´s Firework display is called Free Prague – 30 years from the Velvet revolution.  


Best spots to watch fireworks:

  • Prague bridges (Čechův, Mánesův, Štefánikův)
  • Dvorak waterfront
  • Parizska street
  • Petřín hill
  • Letna park
  • Riegrovy sady
  • Vítkov
  • Old Town
  • Parukařka park

 

The fireworks will be fired from Letna park and will last for 10 minutes 52 seconds. It will include music. An hour before the fireworks a laser countdown will be projected onto the Letna hill. The first sound effect will be burned fifteen minutes before 6 p.m., others will follow 10, 5 and 1 minute before the start of the show.

 

Five thematic images

 

The show will include five paintings, each symbolizing one stage of the revolution in 1989. All the paintings, Prayer, Holly Hands, Unity, Forbidden Fruit and Freedom - and soundtracks are built to evoke memories and emotions associated with this period.

The whole storyline is composed as a retrospective narrative. The character of father shares his personal experience with the revolution with his 10-year-old father daughter. Prayer for Marta or songs from Rolling Stones and the Beatles will be played during Prague Fireworks show. 

Organisers of fireworks promise the perfect blend and harmony of music with fireworks effects that have their exact place, time and angle. Sound effects will include various symbols, for example the number 17, recalling the November 1989.

  

For a better lighting effect, the public lighting and traffic lights on Dvorak,Edvard Benes and Alsovo waterfront and parts of Manes bridge and Letna park will be switched off while the Prague metronome will have a festive lighting.
