As usual, the city takes care of its people when it comes to providing free entertainment options for NYE. Last year, some changes were made to the super-extraordinary NYE extravaganzas that had been previously organized across the city, but as it turns out, those changes were well received by Cracovians and visitors alike. It just goes to show there's no shortage of magic in this city to tap into if you're searching to ring in the New Year with flair and wherever your diverse preferences may take you. There's truly something for everyone—provided you can get to it through all the crowds. Depending on whether you have small children or pets with sensitive ears (or if you yourself have sensitive ears), you might take this news differently: for the second year in a row, the city has also opted out of organising a fireworks display, instead focusing on providing loads of entertainment and concerts. Spread across four stages in four different parts of town - the main market square, Tauron Arena, Aleja Róż in Nowa Huta, and Rynek Podgórski - various artists will ensure that you ring in the New Year with class. Note that though free of charge, tickets are required and must be obtained in advance for Tauron Arena; register here.
