Get the Party started at the New Year Destinations of 2024

We have seen countless photos of New Year celebrations from party hotspots such as Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and Tokyo. Each year, these premier destinations usher in the festivities with a grand display of fireworks and celebrations that leave travellers mesmerized. At these premium spots, you’d probably have to break the bank to take part in the festivities. Thankfully there are many cities that throw equally enthralling parties, which are safe and open for travel. This year, move over the big names and party with panache at lesser-known havens of festive celebrations.

1. Yerevan, ArmeniaArmenia New Year


The festive spirit grips Yerevan from the start of December and decorations can be seen in the entire city. The city is lined with several Christmas trees and a main, big tree stands at the Republic Square, at the heart of the city. Swan Lake, close to Republic Square, is another lively place to visit. Enjoy local food and drinks while listening to live music and watching people ice skate on the frozen lake. Or put on a pair of skates and go skating yourself. Witness a pomegranate blessing ceremony in one of the churches in the city. Apart from these, there are plenty of clubs, pubs and bars in the city to let your hair down while sipping on local brews.

2. Belgrade, SerbiaBelgrade, Serbia


New Year Celebrations in the capital of Serbia seem to bring out nearly all of its residents and visitors to the party. The parties generally start late and go long into the night. The countdown to midnight is the start of the fun. Belgrade is known for its nightlife - strings of clubs and pubs on barges along the rivers Sava and the Danube. These barges come alive during the new year celebrations with locals and tourists thronging their decks to groove to the music while drinking drafts. Because of the cold winter, locals also throw massive house parties. This intimate experience will show you the fun side of the Serbs and you can quit the queues. Though the Serbian winter is incredibly harsh, the festive warmth of Belgrade more than makes up for it.

The New Year has been a major festival in Uzbekistan since the Soviet era. And Tashkent is the hub of the new year celebrations and parties. A huge, dazzling Christmas tree is put up at the Independence Square where people gather for live music, good food and occasionally, the sight of snowfall. The theatres, cafes and restaurants in the city also have special events during the festivities. The Tashkent Circus treats its visitors with a special program and the Alisher Navoi Theater presents a special Winter Tales performance. The theatre also hosts several ballet and opera performances during the festive season and it is a great opportunity to listen to classical music performed on traditional Uzbek instruments. A different kind of celebration, Tashkent is a treat for those who want to start their new year with a twist.
