Kafka House, Prague

3.0
#49 of 86 in Museums in Prague
Kafka House celebrates the influential 20th-century writer on the site where he was born. Although the original building has been torn down, a bust marks the spot where the author was born. Through texts and photographs, the exhibit pieces together a timeline of the author's life for those wishing to learn more on a visit to the city that influenced so much of his writing. As Kafka was Jewish, the museum also addresses Jewish life in the capital.

  • Kafka was born here. The place is a coffee shop- restaurant. Nothing much relating to Kafka and his life. Had only a coffee and snacks.
  • Good food! And right by the major tourist area.
  • Nice location loved watching people
  • good cognac
  • We got to the restaurant and asked about the birth place. Waiter was very rude saying that was it and that is no house !

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
