John Lennon Wall, Prague

3.4
#28 of 155 in Sightseeing in Prague
Landmark Tourist Spot
Once a major source of irritation for the country's Communist regime, John Lennon Wall remains an important symbol of Prague's struggle for democracy. Young Czechs started writing their grievances here in the early 1980s, often clashing with security police on a nearby bridge. The wall lost its political edge in the 1990s and today features mostly John Lennon-inspired graffiti and fragments of well-known Beatles songs. The wall is a continuous work in progress, each new attempt to whitewash it simply providing tourists with a blank canvas on which to add more peace messages, drawings, and poems. A visit to John Lennon Wall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Prague trip generator to plot your vacation.

  • Excited to finally see the John Lennon Wall, I was surprised to fall on a small wall covered with graffiti, a wall that doesn't have the name Lennon. There is a photo, then we go our way.

  • Basically nothing to see here except some teenagers who are doing their Instagram pics there. There used to be quite nice graffiti but have since been oversprayed with some ordinary but colorful tags....  more »
  • Basically on the way if your walking from a Prague Castle to Charles Bridge so worth a stop to appreciate this colourful street art wall of John Lennon tributes and inspirational quotes/drawings. You ...  more »

  • Nice place to see a unique piece of Prague'a culture. Off the beaten path away from most tourism but still plenty of people taking pictures. I recommend also bringing a lock and locking it to the bridge over the waterway next to the wall (To buy a lock will cost you ~150 Crowns). Throw away the keys in the river :)
  • Nice and short sightseeing. Great for some pics. But unfortunately not really related to john Lennon and the young generation values like freedom and peace due the random graffiti spray.
  • This is a nice place in Prague. Not only due to the wall. This place is a bit aside the mass-tourism. The area gives an impression of a historic Prague with alleyway, nice pubs and coffe bars.
  • Nothing incredible, but is an interesting stop if you are in the area. Many graffiti and artists, singing and playing. Nice atmosphere!
  • There is some sort of feeling attached to this one that one can sense as soon as one takes a look at it. Make sure you take some colours or sprays with you to paint some art on the wall yourself because it is allowed. A good way to leave your make behind in prague.much better than the lock bridge for sure

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
