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.
