When we arrived at night on New Year's Eve, I felt Prague was… not pretty. We had a lame New Year celebration as well, on a boat with horrible buffet and on the countdown we went up to the top deck and saw terrible fireworks and people on the bridges throwing beer bottles to the river, which was very dangerous because boats were passing under the bridges! However, it was still memorable because it's not where you are, again, it's WHO you are with and I felt grateful I got to spend that New Year's Day 1 January 2014 with amazing friends!
In the morning, we actually scheduled to leave Prague and headed straight to Stuttgart, but we drove around the city for a while after looking for a restaurant (which was hard to find since it was a New Year's day, so we ate Chinese food!) Then, we decided to roam around the city that turned out to be beautiful and postponed our journey to Stuttgart. We went to
Little did we know, the Czechs celebrated New Year's Day with loads of fireworks on the night of 1st January, not at midnight between 31st December and 1st January!

It was weird, but it's interesting to know that different culture celebrate a common event differently and that's what I love about travelling; you always find out something new.
