Let’s plan where to celebrate the end of the year

Feel the holiday spirit! If you are in town on the 31st, we have collected some ideas to say farewell to 2018 and welcome 2019 in style. There are glittery themed extravaganzas, pub crawl with freebies, be yourself and feel the love at queer parties, celebrate up in the sky or on a boat in the middle of the Danube. This post has been updated today! If you haven’t purchased a ticket yet, limited entry and crowd on arrival may occur! 

FYI: Firecrackers has been banned by the government, so it is safer to join the happy celebrating crowd in the streets and enjoy the fireworks. Outdoor festive celebrations will be at the Vörösmarty Square, Nyugati Square and Oktogon with fireworks, also the “Party District” – around the Jewish Quarter and the ruin bar area in District 7 – will be packed, so you can just go with the flow in case you haven’t pre-booked at any venues.
