Details:
This year the annual Perseid meteor shower should be more interesting as there is prediction for higher meteor frequencies as usual (see http://www.imo.net). However unlike last year, the maximum of the shower will be partially disturbed by the moonlit (in the first half of maximum night). So it is better to enjoy the shower days before, especially from August 8th.

This image was made during last year Perseids peak, showing myself under the Slovakian sky of Poloniny dark sky park (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poloniny_Dark-Sky_Park). It is composition image, where you can count 174 Persed, which I captured in a week around the peak of Perseid activity 2015 (as well as the foreground) and mathematically stacked all together.
