Vilnius in Lithuania with its cathedral square is the perfect location for New Year’s Eve.

New Year’s Eve | Vilnius, Lithuania

The square was built in the 19th century after the reconstruction of Vilnius Cathedral. It is now the biggest square of Vilnius, a former area dense with public renaissance and medieval buildings. This photo of the cathedral square with the Christmas Tree was taken a day before celebrating New Year’s Eve in Vilnius a few years ago.

If you want to have a different New Year celebration, choose a historic place as Kotor, Montenegro. What I especially liked about our visit in this picturesque city is that it wasn’t so crowded as it is during the tourist season. The Kotor gates – the entrances to the Old Town, are three. What you see here is the famous Kotor Sea Gate – the main entrance, constructed in 1555.

Fireworks over the Rudolfinum in Prague making it look like New Year's Eve in the Czech city at Vltava river.

New Year’s Eve | Prague, Czech Republic

I captured the fireworks over the Rudolfinum in Prague rather randomly. I just prepared to take photos from the Charles Bridge when the firework started. Only turning around the camera and not changing any settings, I took some photos. Fortunately, I did so as the fireworks only lasted for a few seconds.
