New Year’s Eve in Budapest

By Sasha, December 2012

No reviews, be the first!

With its reputation as a party city, Budapest celebrates Szilveszter, Hungary‘s New Year, with a bang. Street parties take place across the city and the explosion of fireworks marks midnight over the Danube River. Public transport operates until 1pm, but stores close at around 4pm and reopen only on January 2.

1) Street Parties
Budapest’s biggest street parties are held at Vörösmarty Square, where three days of live music and dancing kick off around New Year. Hungarian pop bands perform in Nyugati Square and DJs provide 10 hours of non-stop sounds at Oktogon Square.
