The route is largely flat, with the exception of the climb to the Vitkov Memorial. At the end of the 20th century, Karlín was still a shabby industrial district of no particular interest to visitors. After the catastrophic floods of 2002, Karlín underwent a rebirth. In place of damaged buildings, new, ambitious, high-quality structures went up, bringing with them new life. Today, it's a fashionable (yet not over-gentrified) district with an atmosphere that many say resembles that of Berlin. You will find wide boulevards, renovated Art Nouveau houses, trendy restaurants and cafés, green parks, and sensitively restored industrial buildings. Looming over Karlín is Vítkov hill with the National Memorial, which offers sweeping views of the entire city.
