The Prague of Kafka

Kafka has inevitably left his imprints all over Prague, his birth town. He had a sort of love-hate affair with Prague. His Kafkaesque legacy still breathes life in Prague. Born in Prague on 3rd July 1883, Kafka spent most of his life in Prague, though he traveled to many other places in his lifetime. Kafka's work was published posthumously and ironically was published in his homeland only after twenty years of his death.
