Prague's New Years 2006 fireworks starting early this year

In order to accommodate the wishes of families with children, the City of Prague’s New Years fireworks will take place on January 1, 2006 and begin earlier than usual. The first rocket to kick off the “Country of Smiles” show will be lit at 6 pm this year.

Sounds pretty sweet – it’s always nice to watch a good fireworks display without having to duck for cover as locals and tourists alike get retarded with their bottle rockets and roman candles, as they tend to do all over Prague – hell, all over the Czech Republic – at midnight on December 31.

In my opinion (and in the opinion of far too many other people), the best place to view Prague’s official New Years’ fireworks is Charles’ Bridge. If you want to see the display from closer to the source, head up to Letna Park.
