The Da Vinci Code And Kafka Spook Prague

When Dan Brown takes a vacation, speculation is not far behind. Will Prague feature in an upcoming book? Has the Charles Bridge affected him as it affected Kafka? Was the castle he visited Kafka's Castle? Was the cemetery the cemetery where Kafka is buried? Has his "inspirational visit" been inspired by Kafka? [DE]

Prague visit “inspirational” says Da Vinci Code writer Dan Brown

The author of The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown, has just been in Prague for what he described as a vacation. The multi-million selling writer, known for his love of symbols and legends, has set previous novels in other historical European cities. So what are the chances of the action in a future Brown hit taking place in the Czech capital?

Dan Brown is the author of enormous international best-sellers including The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons and Inferno. On a three-day visit to Prague, the code-obsessed writer visited popular sights and got to see underground tunnels and other spots normally closed to the public. But, speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Brown was cagey on whether they might feature in a future novel of his.
