Karlín has rapidly transformed from an industrial area to a stylish place filled with restaurants and bars. Popular international bands and artists fill the concert halls at Forum Karlín, while the Musical Theatre offers classic musicals and operettas. Restaurants with elaborate cuisine, wine bars, and tearooms are situated in repurposed factories.

The old port, surrounded by office buildings, provides walking and cycling trails along the river and is complete with an outdoor bar with cultural activities. Despite the changes Karlín went through the last decade, it is still welcoming to all locals. A popular place to work, eat and exercise, Karlín is a great place to meet some new friends.
