John Lennon Wall, Prague

3.4
#71 of 745 in Things to do in Prague
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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Prague holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the John Lennon Wall and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    Easy to find and pretty to look at and read what people have written on the wall. Good for photo opportunities and obviously very popular  more »

    Lennon wall one can find on the Kampa Island, near the Charles Bridge. It is worth to go there when you walk, because this is something else, quite different from the historic nature of the central part of the city. I saw this meisjce the first time, although I was already in Prague. Nice, although I read in the comments that it used to be much nicer. Hard to take a picture of a blank wall, because visits her a lot of people. Still worth a look, by the way.

    The place is popular among a rather younger visitors. To reach here you need to slightly deviate from the main route. Apparently this is not a must see in Prague, but here is a lot of positive energy. All colors of the Rainbow stimulate the imagination. After all it is just acting on the creator's imagination graffiti of "soul". In addition, the place is located in the most beautiful countryside in Prague-lesser quarter

    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
