They say that what happens on the New Year happens all year round. So why plan a New Year escapade and celebrate it to the fullest? Here are some of the best places to greet 2017.
1. Petersburg, Russia
The holiday illuminated the boulevard and bridges of St. Petersburg. A crowd waits over Neva River for the fireworks show. Hundreds of paper lanterns are lighted up and set flying in the night sky.
2. Vienna, Austria
The Pummerin bell rings from the tower of St. Stephen’s Cathedral welcoming the New Year. A dinner party cruises along the Danube gives a good view of the superb display of fireworks. The streets are filled with symphonies and tables are filled with hot mulled wine and toffee apples. Watch the New Year concert from the Vienna Philharmonic on a huge TV screen designed for public viewing.
