This is a wonderful museum dedicated to the "kafka-esque"...The faaaaaabulous part of our visit was the reprieve from the aggessive, vile-consumer driven tourists that have overrun this lovely city like Roman mobs at a gladiator goulash giveaway... Anyway, it's a small museum, with lots to...More

This was a strange but satisfying museum off the beaten part of Prague. We took a Taxi there. The walls, floor and ceiling are all black. At ankle height an occasional square window opened to a river below, small treasures of light. There are many...More

Kafka is a very interesting character and the museum succeeds in capturing his state of mind. It’s dark, it’s noisy and at times confusing. You really enter another world while coming to the museum from the pretty streets of Malá Strana. The museum does not...More

The museum is dedicated to Franz Kafka. Franz Kafka had to struggle in all his life early from his childhood. He expired when he was only 40 years. He was a German-speaking Jewish, born in Prague. He was mainly a short story writer. This museum...More

This display of Kafka’s life and work provide great insight into this complicated person and his literary gifts. Until we visited we did not realize Kafka, Einstein and Freud were contemporaries.

First of all, Bravo to SaKaFa's review (below). It hit the nail on the head. The museum is difficult to get to and may involve fighting through the crowds on the Charles Bridge. But, in the final analysis, I'm glad I went. Check one off...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch
