Franz Kafka Museum (Muzeum Franze Kafky)

Täglich von 10 bis 18 Uhr geöffnet
Cihelna 2B, Prague, 118 00

The basics

The exhibition consists of two sections: Existential Space and Imaginary Topography. The first explores the way that Prague shaped the author’s life via his diaries and correspondence with family members, friends, lovers, and publishers. The second is focused on the way that Kafka depicted Prague in his work—although he generally did not name the places he described in his novels and stories, it is generally accepted that, for example, the cathedral in The Trial is Prague’s St. Vitus Cathedral and that the path taken by Joseph K. in the last chapter of the novel goes from the Old Town, across Charles Bridge, to the Lesser Town.

Visitors can tour the museum independently or, for an additional fee, book a guided tour (it is advised that you book seven days in advance). The museum sells maps of Franz Kafka’s Prague, which is a great way to further explore the city in his footsteps.
