Monument · Hidden Gem · Landmark
Sitting on a plateau in front of the Quadrio business center, Franz Kafka Monument is a kinetic sculpture by the contemporary artist David Cerny. Combining modern technologies with traditional crafts, the artist created the head of the great writer from 42 mobile tiers, which slowly rotate independently of one another playing with the form and light. The 11 m (36 ft) statue was cleverly named Metalmorphosis, alluding to Kafka's famous story Metamorphosis. To find out how to plan a trip to Prague, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • This rotating, ever changing statue is super duper cool. It's so visually pleasing and always moving so you never see the same thing for too long. It's a must see attraction in the city center.  more »
  • We came across this randomly, I personally wouldn't go looking for it but it was nice to watch for a few minutes I guess.  more »
  • Interesting piece of art. Kinda confusing. But cool.
  • Brilliant, but without music and so many people, it's not cool.
