Franz Kafka and Prague are inseperably connected. One of the city's most famous sons, Kafka had a complicated relationship with his birthplace. This and more is addressed at Kafka Museum in Prague.
As you enter the exhibition, you step into a different world - the world of Franz Kafka. The darkened rooms are inhabited by a gloomy atmosphere, reminiscent of that in Kafka's works. The exhibition consists of two parts. "Existential Space" is an impressive documentary of how Prague influenced Kafka and his life. He perceived the city as a "dear little mother with claws" - as his home, and yet at times also as a prison. The second part, "Imaginary Topography" discusses the settings of Kafka's works, where he rarely mentions Prague, but it always remains present in one way or another.
The museum includes first editions of most of Kafka's works as well as a range of letters, diaries, manuscripts, photographs, and drawings. 3-D installations and audiovisual pieces present the exhibits in a unique way. Furthermore, a soundtrack created especially to be this exhibition's musical backdrop completes the atmosphere.
