The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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 modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

I was unable to find the Kafka's House exactly. It is not indicated very well and in any case you cannot enter in. Instead besides the Jewish District of Prague you can find the monument in honor of Franz Kafka.

Came across this Statue whilst exploring the Jewish District of Prague. Its in honour of Franz Kafka who was a German-speaking Bohemian Jewish novelist. A good statue albeit a little scary.

I travelled in Prague and this attraction is a must visit. They say if you touch the shoes of the statue they bring good luck :)

A statue commemoratiing Kafka's Birthplace in the centre of Jewish Prague. It's by the bridge close to the Spanish Synagogue, not easy to miss it. As for a museum dedicated to Kafka, I would recommend the one on the other side of Vltava River, it's quite close to the Charles bridge.

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.
