Fireworks, party, champagne –  as every year on 31st of December we will be celebrating New Year's Eve. If you don't have any idea what to do this night in Krakow I'll try to give you few tips. When all guest lists are closed, and restaurants are fully booked, you may choose going to the open party. In Krakow, there's one open-space party organised right in the Main Market Square, between Sukiennice and St Mary's Church. This year that will be disco night: in line up you can find Kelis and famous Polish DJ's.

If you don't feel like standing outside all night long and get frozen, check out once again clubs in Krakow. I'm sure that you will find at least few of them where few tickets will be left. Entrance fee usually includes welcome drink, glass of champagne and snacks. You can also count on good company: Polish people really like to have fun..

For those who don't feel comfortable on  crowded dancefloor, I suggest visiting one of Krakow's pubor bar. Usually the entrance is free of charge and you will have a chance to chat with other people at the bar, tasting Polish liquors or beer.

For cultural readers who cannot imagine this night without orchestra or good movie I have a bad news: all tickets to opera are probably sold out..but better double check it, there's always a chance for last-minute cancellation. Of course you can also stay at hotel or apartment and have your own party – like in Angel House!
