The Grave of Franz Kafka and New Jewish Cemetery


At the grave of Franz Kafka, a beautiful jewish cemetery, overgrown and filled with plant life, girls must have their shoulders covered and guys must wear a hat, they have (kippah’s) at the entrance to put on. Franz Kafka’s grave is located at the New Jewish Cemetery which was established in 1891. The cemetery is free to enter and they suggest to leave stones if you are to leave something, as to tradition.



There is a plaque across from the grave for Max Brod, Kafka’s best friend.

We took the train to the Cemetery, getting off at Želivského station. The New Jewish Cemetery is a short walking distance from the station.

The New Jewish Cemetery is located at  Izraelská 712/1, 130 00 Praha 3 .
