New Year’s Eve in Gdansk in 2019
Not as spectacular as in Sydney and not as hot as in Rio de Janeiro, but still – if you happen to be in Gdansk on the New Year’s Eve, it is worth to check what to do on that special night. This year’s celebration of New Year’s Eve in Gdansk will be alike the previous year. First of all, there will be no spectacular fireworks in Gdansk. This is to ease the animals, that are frightened by the noise they can’t understand. Also, just like the last year, some events will be moved outside the Old Town. This year the celebration will take place in six districts. All events below are free!
We don’t know it yet for sure, but all venues will probably be connected with a special bus line, and after the party is finished, additional buses will be provided to ensure people can go home easily and safely.
