The new year’s eve party rocks the  Copacabana Beach from 8pm to 6am. “Eleven barges stocked with 1,200 fireworks each, 40 sound towers and four screens will ensure that the two-million strong crowd will always remember where they saw in 2013.”

6. Moscow

Russian winter festivities and the celebrations are some of the biggest and best in the world. Don’t forget to get there as early as you can. In previous years the police have closed the square once they have felt that it has become too crowded.

5. Berlin

Juni between Brandenburger Tor and Siegessäule. Music, dancing, stage shows, and world-class, spectacular fireworks make New Year’s Eve in Berlin more than a match for, say, New York’s.”

4. Madeira

Why? For the largest firework display in the world. Yep! Fireworks are set off from about 50 posts, lighting up the skies over Funchal for about ten minutes.

3. Amsterdam

2. Paris

To stand on the Champs-Elysees to see in the New Year is one of those do-before-you-die activities (believe me, I’m been there!). The fireworks by the Eiffel Tower seem to almost lift it off the ground.

1. London

One thing you won’t have to shell out for that night is the public transport. The Mayor picks up the bill for you.
