This was a very interesting museum and overview of Kafka's work and life. It was an interesting experience to walk down narrow alleys and into a bureaucratic maze of drawers and atmospherics. However, the museum was a bit scarce in content and detail, particularly about...More

We really enjoyed seeing the Metamorphosis exhibit downtown and we then walked to the Museum across the river. In front are some humorous but kind of inappropriate statues. Heads up if you have small children with you. The Kafka museum behind the statues was a...More

This display of Kafka’s life and work provide great insight into this complicated person and his literary gifts. Until we visited we did not realize Kafka, Einstein and Freud were contemporaries.

First of all, Bravo to SaKaFa's review (below). It hit the nail on the head. The museum is difficult to get to and may involve fighting through the crowds on the Charles Bridge. But, in the final analysis, I'm glad I went. Check one off...More

A mastermind such as Kafka has surely deserved a much better museum. This one is a very tiny space with an obvious desire to be "modern", but in many respects failing to do so. First, be aware that this is a collection of Kafka's manuscripts,...More

The museum goes through Kafka’s life from his early years to his death. I knew little about Kafka and can say I now know substantially more. However there are significant limitations to the museum. The major limitation is that they could have used the opportunity...More

This museum is like no other we have ever been to. It is DARK, literally; black and poorly lighted. It is dreadfully dreary and depressing. There are very little English descriptions of the displays. Kafka himself was probably insane or at least mentally disturbed and...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
