New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.

Slovenia celebrates New Year’s Eve and Day with quite a bit of vigor, and there are widespread celebrations. Virtually every town and city has a large gathering in the local city square.

The biggest events on New Year’s Eve in Slovenia take place in the capital city of Ljubljana. Many gather in the city square and the “Old Town” for concerts, street parties, fireworks, and more.

Grand fireworks also are launched over Lake Bled, making amazing reflections on the water. And many head to the mountains to ski and enjoy private cabin-parties on or around 31 December.
