My guidebook included a walking route called “Kafka’s Prague” and I did it on my first day in the city. I didn’t go all the way to the end (the last spot was where Hotel Intercontinental stood today, so I skipped it) and unfortunately I couldn’t pinpoint all the buildings because the book didn’t give house numbers, but I managed to go through the streets that Kafka went through on a daily basis.
Here we start:
This is the street where Kafka worked at the Worker’s Accident Insurance Company between 1908 and 1922.
This is the Powder Gate, which he passed through everyday on his way back from work.
This is Old Town Square. Kafka remembers being dragged across the square by the scrawny and unfriendly family cook to his school on Masna Street.
The House of the Minute, where young Kafka lived between 1889-1896.
Kafka’s bust at his birthplace.
The Franz Kafka monument, by Jaroslav Rona.
The courtyard of the Franz Kafka Museum, which I thoroughly enjoyed. And, they have a lovely museum shop with stationery, posters and mugs…
