Franz Kafka Museum
Franz Kafka (1883–1924), a Czech writer, is one of the most significant figures of the 20th century. At the heart of his literary, and real, world was Prague – and it is to Kafka and Prague that the exhibition in the Hergertova cihelna (Franz Kafka Museum) in the Lesser Quarter, in the heart of Kafka’s native city, is devoted.
