I do not get why this place has so many decent reviews! I was really up for learning a lot about Kafka but the layout of this museum was terrible, and I don't care if it's meant to be a metaphor for the themes in...More

I would recommend to start exploring Prague from this museum. The story of one of the most famous writer in Czech Republic also shows the atmosphere of Prague in earlier times. The museum is really good and equipped with different useful materials about Kafka and...More

The museum is small and quite dimmed. Not all information are translated to English. I can't read German and felt that I am missing quite a bit. But I think it's good to go and visit to understand his childhood and influences on his writing.

The museum perfectly recreates the atmosphere of Kafka's novels. Inside you feel burdened, the rooms are dark and squeaky, everything fits perfectly Kafka's universe. It is one of the most experiential museums I have ever visited. If you like Kafka, it leaves you troubled and...More

In the Kafka museum, you will see photocopies of manuscripts, photocopies of photos of Kafka, and short informations about Kafka's life, all from his Czech Wikipedia page. This, for the small price of 7,5 euros. Disappointing. Avoid.

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

Response from Mayur S | Reviewed this property |
The sculpture in front of the Kafka museum is typical of the humour of Franz Kafka. He wanted to use technology and art to make people laugh. I saw a lot of people laughing as they watched the statues. If you read a little... More
