New Year's Eve Events 2003/04

See in 2004 with a sensational Silvestr

It's the end of the year as we know it and you're probably looking for a place to celebrate Silvestr, the biggest night out in the Prague calendar.

Sylester, himself

New Year's Eve is traditionally a much bigger deal than Christmas in the Czech Republic, with pretty much the whole population partying past midnight.

The night is known as Silvestr because December 31st is the feast day of Pope Sylvester I (pictured), though we're not sure what the man himself, who died in the 4th century, would make of some of the festivities carried out in his name.

But though Sly might not approve, we're sure you'll find something to tickle your fancy below.
