Monumento a Kafka is really great scenery. It is surrounded by suburbs and the scenery is relatively desolate, but it is great, with few people, clean and beautiful, it is more convenient if you drive by yourself, and you can also have a picnic! Great~
Right next to the Old Town Square, you don’t know if you don’t pay attention to it. The statue contains the ideals that Kafka pursues. Everyone passing by will check in and take pictures. The shoes of the bronze statue had to be polished to shine.
This monument is creative enough. It is said that the sculptor Yaroslav Rona was inspired by Kafka’s works, and it is said that it embodies the "confrontation" between Kafka and his father... Can you accept the following understanding? ? "His main character is jealous of a traveler and climbs onto his shoulders to see the world through different eyes. When he finds that everyone has his own burden, his jealousy of strangers disappears." In short, the sculpture It was very successful, and the trophies of the "Kafka Prize", a considerable literary prize, also directly used this image. The monument is right next to the Spanish Synagogue (inside the Jewish Museum) in the Jewish Quarter.
It's worth going, it's a pilgrimage, this is the place to follow Kafra. Because his work is written in German, it is very important for readers in the German-speaking area and the affected people. When he went there, many young people watched the bronze statue while listening to the teacher’s introduction about Kafra’s deeds. To line up in an orderly line and touch the feet of the bronze statue means to follow his footsteps. So the two feet of the bronze statue are already flooded.
For many people, Kafka only knew his name after being mentioned by Haruki Murakami. As a Czech born in Prague, his works were written in German. But in Prague now, people still give him enough respect, there are special museums and monuments.
