3,2,1…Happy New Year!

Do you know yet where you will be when you utter those words? Choose one of the many New Year’s Eve celebrations around Slovenia! Almost every city or town is organising events with exciting music and other New Year’s Eve outdoor programmes that will allow you to have a pleasant leap into the New Year. However, if you get cold easily and you’d prefer to spend the longest night of the year somewhere warm, Slovenia also offers many interesting celebration options. You can pamper yourselves in spas, have a New Year’s Eve dinner in Slovenia’s most elite hotels, or even at the opera. You can also escape the urban hustle and bustle and spend the last few hours of this year in the pleasant shelter of mountain cabins.

Welcome the New Year outdoors

Celebrate the New Year in the streets and squares of Slovenia’s towns and cities! Markets stalls will offer delicious food and hot beverages to keep you warm.  Music performed by renowned Slovenian musical groups will see that the count down to the last hours of the old year will tick away quickly. Magnificent fireworks will light up the sky at midnight.

Enter the New Year feeling reborn

There are also some New Year's resolutions that lead us to well-being. But why wait? In Slovenia’s spas and health resorts, you can enter the New Year already revitalised. In addition to a delicious dinner and a New Year’s Eve ball, you can spend New Year's Eve in your bathing suit. For an even more romantic experience on the last day of the year, in some places you can even go on a hike with fire torches.

New Year’s Eve par excellence

Would you like to experience something truly special on the last day of the year? How about dinner at the Ljubljana Opera? First a gala dinner will be served, then Rossini's opera Cinderella will add a magic touch to the evening, and a gala dance will ring in the New Year with Nuška Drašček Rojko, a famous Slovenian singer. If you decide to visit a musical or theatre event in Cankar Hall on New Year’s Eve, festive snacks and pleasant music performed by The Mood Swingers will be there for you after the show to see you through to the New Year.

Experience a glamorous leap into the New Year in Slovenia’s 5-star hotels. Treat yourself to a classy New Year's Eve celebration accompanied by the sound of sea waves, a view of an Alpine lake and the Julian Alps, on a romantic island in the middle of a river, in the vibrant capital or amidst the bubbling of unique mineral waters.

Welcome the New Year in contact with nature

If you are one of those people who wish to spend New Year’s Eve far from the urban hustle and bustle and away from the masses, escape into the embrace of nature. The doors of some mountain cabins and lodges are open even on New Year’s Eve. Good company and an idyllic mountain backdrop will create a pleasant and joyous leap into the New Year. If you’re looking for something special, celebrate the New Year in some of Slovenia’s ski resorts. If you enter the New Year at the Vogel Ski Resort, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Bohinj Valley, have fun enjoying live music at the snow beach at the Krvavec Ski Resort, or spend your New Year’s holidays at the Rogla Ski Resort by enjoying various activities for the whole family. After a day of skiing, you can join the New Year's Eve party at Kope, Golte or Soriška planina.
