New Year’s Eve in Vilnius is a special time in Lithuanian capital city. Every year thousands of cheerful locals and city guests flood the Cathedral Square and the main streets of the Old Town to watch fascinating fireworks and participate in one of the many New Year celebration events.
Nightlife in Vilnius is always pretty active, but it reaches its highest level on New Year’s Eve. Almost each night club or pub suggests loads of fascinating New Year’s Eve parties and other entertainments.
Vilnius attracts a lot of people during New Year’s Eve. As a rule of thumb, tickets for events sell out quickly and hotel rooms are reserved way before the big night. Therefore, we would recommend you to book the hotel in advance.
The best spots to watch fireworks
Cathedral Square. Even though exact location of fireworks usually is announced only few days before the New Year’s Eve, they’re always designed with guests in the Cathedral Square in mind. Therefore it gets especially crowded during midnight.
Hill of Three Crosses. Beautiful panorama of Vilnius Old Town opens from this hill. If fireworks are launched from Cathedral Square, Hill of Three Crosses will give you one of the best angles.
