New Year traditions in Prague
Prague is one of the favorite destinations to enjoy the New Year on the street, feeling the celebration of a city which is mobilized to welcome visitors, tourists and its own citizens who leave their homes to share such a lovely time. For this reason, Prague do not hesitate cutting the traffic on the most central street to not disturb the festive atmosphere.
However, as a curiosity or if we want to celebrate New Year’s Eve around a table in a restaurant, there are certain traditions of families in Prague in the New Year’s dinner that should be emphasized.
The traditional New Year’s Eve dinner in Prague consists of fish soup, potato salad and breaded carp. It brings good luck if we put under the dishes the scales of the carp as a way to ensure that each of the family members will not lack money in the next year.
The same tradition dictates that no one can leave the table during dinner, and two apples are cut in two equally blocks to reveal the seeds the health of the following year.

At the beginning we mentioned the possibility to spend New Year’s Eve without even leaving the room or the hotel with our luxury services offering to cover every need instantly, also in this magical day.
