New Year’s Eve in Warsaw

Yesterday, we all celebrated the end of the year and the arrival of the new 2019. On this occasion, a great and long-planned event took place in Warsaw, which was attended by crowds of residents and people who came to our city specially for this occasion. In the center of Warsaw, on Bankowy Square, a great stage was built for a few days. This is an amazing technical project, because everything had to be at the highest level and the scene is slowly disappearing today. From 19 o’clock, the first amateurs of outdoor fun began to arrive.

The greatest stars of Polish music were invited to the party. The invitation was accepted by music veterans: Bajm band, Lady Pank, Izabela Trojanowska, Małgorzata Ostrowska but also young talents – Natalia Nykiel, Sarsa, Smolasty, Andrzej Piaseczny, Agnieszka Chylińska, IRA, Wilki, Edyta Górniak, Ania Wyszkoni with the band Łzy. At the beginning, to warm up the audience, we got a compilation of world hits performed live by our stars. The time machine teleported us three or four decades back, when “Footloose”, Eurythmics or Spice Girls reigned on the dance floors. I think that you also do not know these passwords. Later, each of the musical guests came out on the stage, played one or two songs. The performers changed and the concert was in the best. At midnight, the audience jointly counted down the last 10 seconds of the old year and we greeted the new year with a big cheer. This year, for the first time, Warsaw has joined other European capitals, which are caring for the comfort and safety of animals (mainly dogs who are very afraid of noise) and there was no fireworks display. Instead, we watched a short laser show. The game ended at one am, but the amused Warsaw residents enjoyed the streets until the early hours of the morning.

The party was great! In fantastic moods, we entered the new year amused.

Warsaw sends you heartfelt wishes! Let this new 2019 be even better than the previous one!
