The Franz Kafka Museum is located in the Lesser Quarter of Prague, on the bank of the Vltava River. It provides multimedia exhibitions and memorabilia offering an insight into the world of Prague-born Franz Kafka, one of the most significant figures of 20th century literature.
The various displays include first editions of Kafka's works, original correspondence, diaries, photographs, and drawings. There are also video and sound installations that explore the relationship between the writer and the city that shaped him. Throughout the museum, Prague is represented as a city full of the mysterious tales and strange happenings that influenced the life and works of Kafka.
There is also a museum shop, plus a somewhat bizarre fountain in the courtyard outside, which features two men standing opposite each other and urinating into a lake in the shape of the Czech Republic.
The Franz Kafka Museum can be reached by taking metro Line A to Malostranska station. It is also accessible via tram numbers 12, 20, and 22.
