John Lennon Wall, Prague

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Prior to our visit to Prague I had read the pretty mixed reviews on this wall and I can get why that would be. We actually made a point to find it at some point during our visit and it is not far, tho...  more »
  • Had we gone here on our own, I wouldn't have understood what this wall represents. Our tour guide explained it to us. John Lennon never came to Prague but on that Monday night, December 8, 1980, when ...  more »
  • Didn't found this so specific place. History behind and quite many visitors but I'd like more the area itself.  more »

  • My personal highlight in Prague! We stayed there for minutes just to stare at the wall. Awesome street art and I will come back as often I can, so see the changes over the course of time! Loved it! Be sure to visit in the morning, so the place it not that crowded yet!!!
  • Ever changing wall of graffiti. Most things were positive and inspiring, and there were several tributes to The Beatles. It's really neat that you can always see something new there but everything is connected because of the symbol the wall has become.
  • Wow! Such a great place to witness human spirit. When the communist rule this city you cannot hear the radio. Someone Heard The John Lennon was dead. He wrote it on this wall dad became a symbol of human freedom.
  • Colorful Wall. Anyone can express themselves, write positive messages, graffiti on the Lennon Wall. I got a peaceful vibe here and wrote my Mom's name on it. Its an ever changing wall as many tourists flock to see it. Its bright and pretty. Glad I stopped.
  • I know its just a wall covered in graffiti but I still found something special about this place. Looking at all the different messages on the wall, learning about its history. If you get a chance call passed it and check it out.
