‘At the Minute’ in Prague

“Prague is the equal of Paris in terms of beauty. Its history goes back a millennium. And the beer? The best in Europe.” – Lonely Planet

This building is called “At the Minute” and it is few steps away from the Old Town Complex in Prague. It is typical Czech Renaissance architecture and the facade depicts biblical and mythological scenes. The writer, Franz Kafka, lived in this house with his family from 1889 to 1896.

The name “At the Minute” means “at the diminutive”, because of the little pieces of tobacco that used to be sold here. – prague-guide.co.uk
