Just a funky museum, bookstore, and the statue out front was just fun (and funny). Nice to walk around and it's right on the river.

I'm glad I got to visit this bookstore beside the Kafka Museum. There's a wide selection of his works in multiple languages. It has friendly staff and it's surrounded by cafes in the centre of town. Also, the statue at the front cannot be missed!

A pictorial bookshop in city center. An excellent place to be informed for Franz Kafka works and to buy well edited books.

Large choise of products but not only from this Museum. A lot of turistic products - Prague souvenirs - from postcards until teacups, etc.

A little gem in the cobbled side lanes of Mala Strana. Overlooked by most you may have it all to yourself. Everything associated with Franz Kafka's writings are there and you can buy his books in English. A very pleasing and quiet location that backs...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods 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
