Kralupy nad Vltavou is a town in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic.
The area of the actual town has been inhabited for millennium, but a significant growth of its population did not begin until the 19th century. It was the construction of the railway that stimulated a strong population growth. Factories were built near the railway, and the Oil Campaign of World War II targeted the oil refinery on December 28, 1944. During the totalitarian communist rule (1948–89) the town lacked democratic municipal government. The town centre was damaged by flood in 2002.
