Nice but it could be better

The museum is ok, much items to see but it could be a little better. Some translations to english are missing.

Crammed full of information about Kafka, with samples of his writing. It's a bit of sensory overload, with the audio and visual aides, but that seems very much in line with his work. The statues outside are quite interesting as well, and even if you're not going to the museum, this is close enough to the Charles Bridge that you... More

From the get-go, one of the best combinations of innovation and education! There's a pretty awesome fountain outside of a man "pissing" on the Czech Republic, apparently spelling out words that you text to a designated number. Inside, there are many surreal and highly informative exhibits about Kafka's life and work.

I am a big fan of Franza Kafka. My high expectations towards this museum were not fully satisfied: rather small, very classically structured (no interactive things, only a lot of written texts), not so rich. I have learned something but much less than I expected. I am sure it's worth it. A cople of more chairs / sofas would be... More

This museum was very impressive! It's small in square feet but sure packs in details about Kafka's life and his internal struggles (all written in beautiful prose) via letters to his father or partners as well as his diary entries. The museum has everything captioned in English & Czech so those who understand either language do not need to pay... More

Not sure you'd get a great deal from this if you have never read Kafka but you don't have to be an expert to understand how great this museum is. The museum is cleverly set out to provide a level of unease just like reading his books. Fascinating glimpse into his life and to life in Prague in the early... More

Not very informative, very small only two floors and eerie videos that had no point to them. If you want to find out more about him, search him on google.

Just like Kafka's works, this museum is far from common and more of an experience than simple contemplation. It offers insightful views on how Kafka became who he was. Entering the museum feels like entering the darkness as well as genius of Kafka's inner world. Minor drawback: Not all citations are translated to English - which makes it difficult for... More

I loved this museum. First of all, it's very modern and appointed in new and interesting ways. It's a great place to visit on your own if you're looking for a break from the crowds. I recommend following up your visit with a trip to a local pub. While you're there, read Metamorphosis from start to finish (even if you've... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
