Fireworks during the New Year (Sylwester) celebration in Poland?

I've searched both Google and here. I'm not sure if I'm typing int he right keywords. In some European countries like Germany, I hear that people celebrate the New Year with a lot of fireworks. Everyone sets off fireworks from their place, and it seems like war has broken out. Is it the same thing in Poland?

I'll be spending my first Christmas and New Year in Poland, and if fireworks can be had and allowed during the New Year, then I would like to take part of it.

Fireworks are very popular in Poland. You can buy some items to be illegal in Germany, imported directly from China.

Thanks for the info! Are there requirements for buying fireworks? In the USA, I had to show an identification card as well as sign a form stating that the fireworks will be used for "farming" purposes (to scare the rodents away).

Milan is on my list someday, but maybe not for New Year's.

Merged: What laws and regulations govern buying and setting off of fireworks in Poland?

Hey all.
I am traveling to Poland this December. I want to buy and set off fireworks. Is it legal, do i need any licenses or whatever? Also, what laws and regulations are in effect? Thank you.

When buying fireworks in Poland you don't need any licence at all. Just follow the rules:

Be 18 or older.
Buy in authorized places.
Use with safety and in appropriate way.
