The neighborhood of Karlin, which is only a few tram stops from Prague’s city center, is an interesting one with a long and tumultuous history. Originally an Austrian settlement founded at the height of the Austro-Hungarian Empire’s power, Karlin wasn’t fully accepted into Prague until 1922 when it officially became part of the city. Plagued by floods throughout its existence (the worst of which occurred in 2002), Karlin has had to rebuild itself many times, hence the various different architecture styles in the form of residential houses that are found here. Walk around and see how modern Czechs live, and appreciate their persistence to keep this neighborhood alive, despite natures relentless plans to tear it down.
