Franz Kakfka was born in Prague in 1883 in a home on the corner of Maiselova and Kaprova, next to the St. Nicholas Church. The original building was torn down years ago, although the door was preserved. A bust of Kafka and plaque now commemorate the site and a small museum has opened in his family home nearby. The Franz Kafka Exposition retells Kafka’s life using simple displays of pictures, quotes and a timeline.
