Kafka’s Prague

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.
