House At the Minute
Old Town Square, Prague, Czech Republic

The town hall's southern face ends at the Renaissance house At the Minute (Dum U minuty), which was built in 1610 and has a facade decorated with ornamental sgraffito.

Franz Kafka's family lived on the second floor of this building from 1889 to 1896.
