The Mrlina is a river located primarily in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic, and a right tributary of the Labe (Elbe) River.

Beginning in the Hradec Králové Region near Markvartice, the Mrlina passes through the cities of Kopidlno, Rožďalovice, and Křinec, and the villages of Nadslav, Střevač, Chyjice, Žitenín, Bartoušov, Pševes, Mlýnec, Podlužany, Vestec, Rašovice, and Budiměřice, before joining the Labe River at Nymburk.

The Mrlina flooded in early January 2003, requiring the 220 inhabitants of Vestec to evacuate.[1]
