It would be easy to miss this and another statue farther on but they are tow of the best monuments to Kafka in the city which seems to do very little to celebrate this great writer.

A centrally located monument at the corner of the square, probably passed by many on the way to the Jewish Quarter. Our tour looked at the house from the outside, so we did not go inside.

This monument of the famous writer, Kafka, is very centrally located, yet it is easily missed by many, who either cannot find it or don't care to look at it. It's certainly worth a couple of minutes of your time while in the square.

This momument was on my must see in Prague list because I like Franz Kafka works. Beside, it is a perceft example of modern monument and it is so kafkaesque. Love it.

Stop by, take a look at the statue, take a picture, look around sheepishly, take another picture, walk away. That is about right for 90% of tourists who come by and you may find it true for you, too. Statue is based on the content...More

The statue here of Franz kafka is very unusual, but interesting. It is situated right in the Jewish Quarter right next to the Holy Spirit Church.

We stopped by there as we saw a tour guide talking to some people about this very unique statue. The story behind the statue was as interesting as it looked. Nice place to take a few pics as well.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
