The Prague of Kafka

Credit: Pixy
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 travelled to many other places. Kafka's work was published posthumously and ironically was published in his homeland only after twenty years of his death.
It is legendarily known that Kafka had asked his friend Max Brod to destroy the manuscripts after his death. However, Max against his friend's wishes edited the manuscripts and published. For Kafka buffs, it is a real treat to understand the life of Kafka. The Kafka statue, inspired by his writings shows Kafka perched on the shoulders of a headless man. It is a symbol of being trapped in the bureaucracy of the modern man. His grave lies at Zikrov in Prague and the Kafka Museum celebrates the work and life of his literary genius. Kafka buffs can even track their steps in history and visit 'Cafe Slavia' which was Kafka's favourite cafe joint.

Visit Prague to get acquainted with Kafka, the man behind literary masterpieces.
