What you can expect

Did you know that pretty much all of Kafka's work was written in Prague? Prague is undeniably the city that directly and indirectly inspired him.

You'll embark on a true 'kafkaesque journey' to discover how Kafka's work successively evolved. His work was ignored, banned, feared, and even considered a symbol of dissidence, before becoming the proud, highly held literary symbol of a city.

The tour starts with a walk, where we’ll cover some of the former Jewish Ghetto and Old Town. Meet me by the house where Franz Kafka was born and stroll the streets and sights that inspired the sceneries in some of his stories.

We’ll talk about his struggles and visionary work, and the sometimes prophetic aspect of his writing. In the process I’ll try to convince you that Kafka was actually a pretty funny guy, and that his work might be more contemporary now than ever.

We’ll look at the fascinating changes Prague went through during Kafka's lifetime, as well as the decades following his death, some aspects of which may seem like he could have written them ahead.

We'll end the tour in the overwhelming Old Town Square, with its incredible architecture and quite a few more excuses to mention Kafka. This tour can be 100% personalized to your wishes, just let me know!

I fell in love with Prague a few years ago and decided to settle here.
When I’m not busy working on a new illustration or art project, I spend a lot of time further exploring Prague; in a way my city is my main hobby! I’m passionate about Czech modern history and Prague’s incredibly diverse architecture. I also love hiking, dancing and cooking for people… and I spend a lot of time reading in cafes :)
I believe that if you need a guide, it’s to show you what’s hidden instead of the obvious touristic routes! I love helping guests discover things they would have otherwise missed..."
