Franz Kafka Museum
The Franz Kafka Museum is a relatively new Prague attraction. It is located in Lesser Town on the unique premises of the former Herget´s Brickyard. From the Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, guests can reach the museum on foot, by car or by urban mass transport. Visitors can link their museum visit with a walk across Old Town and Charles Bridge, which will take no more than 40 minutes.
According to literary critics, Franz Kafka is among the most inspiring and influential authors of the 20th century. However, he did not live long enough to see the success of his prose since he died in 1924 at the age of 36. It is surprising how many people can still appreciate the genius of Kafka´s novels and short stories, such as The Castle, Amerika, The Trial and The Metamorphosis, which were written almost 100 years ago. Today, thousands of people arrive in Prague each year to experience the magical atmosphere of “Kafka´s town.”
The museum features a famous exhibition opened for the first time in Barcelona in 1999. It was presented in New York in 2002 - 2003 and was then brought to Prague in 2005. Divided into two parts – “Existential Space” and “Imaginary Topography” – the exhibition is an unforgettable experience for Kafka admirers.
