When visiting Prague, Karlin is a neighborhood that simply shouldn’t be missed.

Karlin, a district in Prague 8 near Old Town, is undeniably one of Prague's (or Praha's) best-kept secrets. This quaint, well-kempt area nestled between the Vltava River and Park Vitkov, is a treat for tourist and locals alike with its myriad of boutiques, stunning architecture, and unique dining experiences. From nightclubs to theaters to beer gardens and more, this little area of the Czech capital in recent years has become the new hotspot; and when I say new, I mean that quite literally.

In August of '02, a flood of nearly biblical proportions ravaged much of Prague, filling areas in the vicinity of the river with water levels up to 4 meters deep. Karlin, which at the time was considered a blight and one of the slummier areas of the city, was hit especially hard. Although the devastation wiped out the entire borough, it also brought with it a new chance of life and prosperity for the area. Karlin today is a stark contrast to its former years in almost every sense. The area is now home to many world-class technology companies and has garnered a reputation for some of the best restaurants and nightlife in the city. For those looking for a little something different in their Prague experience, Karlin is unquestionably a shouldn't miss neighborhood.
