Why locals love it

I believe many of us are simply fascinated by the mechanism, motion and reflections of this Kafka´s bust. The sculpture is constantly rotating as it is made of 42 moving layers. Its total height is 11 m. So it is not only cool but also giant.

Why you should visit it

If you are a fan of modern, progressive art, this should be one of your next stops. I highly recommend to shoot a video here, it is very difficult to describe or capture the whole mechanism. Kafka´s head is the latest art peice of slightly controversial artist David Černý. Very nice and playful addition to this otherwise sleepy square.

Special tip

Černý just recently installed very similar sculpture on the world's largest cruise ship called Harmony of the Seas.

If you like interesting sculptures or modern art, you should visit this Kafka Head. It is not just for Kafka lovers:) I can stand in front of it for a minutes and be hypnotized by the moves of the head
