John Lennon Wall, Prague
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

Very good to take good pictures and to see a little bit of music by street musicians. If you are in Prague you should go there.
I visited this place and felt a great peaceful atmosphere. You could feel the historical significance of this place. And yes I did take some selfies but still it was amazing. Even if you're shortly in Prague I highly recommend you to go here.
No matter where you're from or how much you know about the oppression in the Czech Republic, you should visit this place just for the inspirational and colorful messages. This mural, a tribute to John Lennon, might just be the perfect backdrop to a selfie!! You can also leave behind your own message.
An inspirational mural with some amazing graffiti. It's gives a good insight into the oppression that Prague suffered through under communism. Definitely worth a visit.
Only 200mt from Charles Bridge. A must see wall for a Selfie or an Instagram photo :) Dont forget to bring your colored pens to leave your own peace message.
The wall's graffity history dates back to 60'ies when first messages for local comedy actor Jan Werich
