A little hard ot find, off the beaten tourist track, but well worth the effort. Make sure you watch the complete rotation of the head.

I love David Cerny statues. There are many in Prague and all are absolutely perfect. This one is maybe the best known. If you have a jeaurney around, just stop for a minute, it is worth it.

for sure it is a unique attraction. Franz Kafka is an important part of Prague culture and it is great to see his statute represented in a nice, artistic and creative way.

I recommend a stop to see the statue and its movements, it is very cool and in a very nice area. Many restaurants close by.

It's nice to stand in front of the bust for a couple of minutes to watch the movement and see Franz Kafka being built.

It is interesting sculpture and fine think is that it move itself. It turns partly around. Built up few years ago.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town
