New Year’s Eve in Warsaw in 2023

written by Maciek Bogdanski

The city council decided not to organize an official New Year’s Celebration 2023 in Warsaw for the fourth time in a row. This is the sign, that the big New Year’s in the Warsaw Old Town become somehow old-fashioned. This is not unusual, as except for Katowice, Zakopane and Gdansk, most big cities in Poland cancelled their new year’s events. So, what are your options for New Year’s Eve celebration in Warsaw if you happen to be in the city?

New Year’s Eve in Warsaw Old Town

Even though there won’t be any concerts in the Old Town, people will gather there anyway. You should not show off drinking alcohol, but a glass of champagne at midnight will not provoke the police to give you a fine. Fireworks are legal, but we encourage you not to use them, as they frighten animals.
