Franz Kafka was honored with a personal monument in the center of Prague almost 80 years after his passing. Dun Street is where Kafka's family resided for a while, and Vzeská Street is where the Franz Kafka statue is situated. It is located halfway between the Spanish Synagogue and St. Spirit Church.
The spirit of Prague is Franz Kafka, and Kafka's soul is Prague. The political unrest that once engulfed the Czech Republic's capital constitutes a significant part of his literary works, even though he never made any explicit references to the city in any of his writings. Many people know that the author's life was always mysterious. It's hard to avoid comparing the two when considering the mystery that connects Bohemia and this author. The residents take great pride in the town's corners that directly relate to different parts of the city and have a similar relationship to the author.
