Visiting the Kafka Museum and two famous squares

The first destination of the day was the Kafka Museum. I’d wanted to visit this place for years and I wasn’t disappointed. I’m a big Kafka nerd so I didn’t learn much new but it felt very special to see the handwritten letters and journal entries of one of my literary idols. The letter he wrote to his parents the day before his passing of tuberculosis touched me especially.

Photography is prohibited inside the exhibit so you’ll have to content yourself with this photo of the entry and of the two pissing fountain men who are in front of it for some reason.

I bought a little souvenir featuring one of my favourite Kafka quotes:

Next on the to-visit list was the legendary Old Town Square, a place of many historical events.

Created in 1410, this is the world’s oldest still running astronomical clock.
I like the style on this church. It looks like Dracula lives here.
Memorial over Jan Hus, who was burned at the stake by the Catholic Church for his ‘heretical’ beliefs.

Not far away from Old Town Square is Wenceslas Square, which is really a boulevard and Prague’s main one. Here are lots of shops but most importantly: the National Museum.
