New Year’s fireworks display scheduled for 6pm on January 1st

Prague’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display is to take place at 6pm on January 1st. It should last for ten minutes and will be divided into five thematic parts, one of them symbolizing the Velvet Revolution that toppled communism twenty-five years ago. Thousands of people are expected to turn up for the display, congregating on Prague’s bridges and the banks of the Vltava River. The fireworks display was rescheduled from midnight to 6pm so that it could be enjoyed by children.
