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.

Was walking around and came across the crowds trying to touch the feet. Read about the statue and man later. Interesting enough plenty of people trying to get a photo.

It's located in downtown/old town area so you don't need to make a special trip to see it. Get in a looong line if you want a picture with the monument, or have cat like reflexes if you want a picture of it without a...More

And then it is there. A modern interpretation in bronze. Unexpected and different. I found it as part of a small walking tour the guidebook suggested. Although it was interesting to see a building where he had been born, lived, worked or met in a...More

Really strange - like all things Kafka. If you like Kafka you are in the right place. Prague seems to love Kafka. Personally I don't get the fascination, but there was a line, tourists taking selfies with the statue...Hmmm, to each his own...

Next to the Spanish synagogue is this bronze statue. It's fascinating and very Kafka. It makes you think about his books and his quotes.

A regular sight to stop off for on the Jewish area, very weird but everyone takes there photo op there. Best description of of Franz Kafka is given on the walking tours and it's just round the corner from the cemetery

We only knew about this because others had eaten at a nearby restaurant and suggested stopping by. Not the Kafka statue (with the moving parts), this is just a strange statue near the Spanish Synagogue--a great photo op.

Not a 'modern art' fan, so I don't recommend making this a destination on your tour of beautiful Prague. If you're in the Jewish Quarter and taking the tour, you'll walk by it.

Josefov
Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small
neighborhood centered around Široká street is
completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As
the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a
few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish
cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small
enough that a person could touch the houses on both
sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this
