5 significant places for Franz Kafka in Prague

1) Franz Kafka's Birth House

A bronze bust reminds passers-by that Franz Kafka was born here on 3 July 1883 as the first child of his parents. The Kafkas moved quite often, but always within the confines of the Old Town Jewish ghetto and within walking distance to the Synagogue. Only the Baroque gate survived after the slums of Josefov were cleared.
