Welcome to Franz Kafka Museum

One of Prague's most famous citizens, renowned author Franz Kafka was born in the city in 1883 in a house on the Old Town Square, next to the Church of St Nicholas. That house now houses a museum devoted to the author, containing original manuscripts, photos and diaries, and delves in depth into Prague's influence on the man and his works like The Metamorphosis and The Trial. There are 3D installations and audiovisual exhibitions, as well as detailed biographical information on Kafka himself.

Czech is the official language but English and German are also widely spoken.

The official currency is the Czech crown, locally known as the Koruna (CZK), which is divided into 100 haler. Most credit cards including American Express, Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard are accepted, but it is best to have cash handy when travelling away from Prague and the main tourist centres. Travellers cheques and foreign currency can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and some hotels; commission is highest in hotels. Banks are closed on weekends. ATMs (known as 'bankomats') are becoming more common in Prague and are probably the best way to obtain local currency at a good rate and without commission. The Czech Republic is still cheap compared to the rest of Europe, though the gap is closing.
