New Year’s Eve in Vilnius 2020

Fireworks and New Year’s Eve in Vilnius.

Vilnius as a capital city of Lithuania becomes by far the biggest New Year’s Eve party scene in the country every year, attracting huge numbers of locals and tourists.

Not everyone likes to find their selves in huge crowds. If that’s you – we would recommend checking out nearby city Kaunas or Lithuania’s greatest resort town Palanga where almost every hotel organizes their own New Year’s Eve Celebrations.

In Vilnius, there are really two options to go about your NYE evening.

First and more budget-friendly is to join the crowd in Vilnius Old Town and celebrate together with the majority of people in Cathedral Square, where the main city celebration takes place.

Another way is to book one of the many NYE events organized by various high-end hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs.

Whatever is more suitable to you, booking your hotel and restaurant in-advance is the key as they tend to sell out quickly way before the actual night.

The best spots to watch fireworks

Cathedral Square. Even though the exact location of fireworks usually is announced only a 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 at 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.
