Very striking monument - the sort of thing Salvador Dali might have done if he'd turned to sculpture. Don'y think the tripadvisor map has its location quite right.

Interesting monument near the Spanish Synagogue. Statute represents a political candidate being carries in the shoulders of a giant from Kafka’s book “Amerika” which was published posthumously. There is also another modern Franz Kafka monument in New Town that looked interesting to visit as well.

Kafka is an important figure in the Country, and several monuments stand for him. This one in particular shows the separation he must had from his life and emotions, in order to be a writer. A great writer as he was.
