John Lennon Wall, Prague

(3.3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Few steps from Charles Bridge. He's really nice given the bright colors and the words of peace and freedom that are depicted.

  • Colorful graffiti-filled wall that stands out even in a colorful neighborhood. Nice singer with a guitar doing Beatles covers fit in perfectly.  more »
  • Very cute, it's worth a visit. It is located on the right side of the church square. Recommended!

  • Really interesting history sprouting from the Anti-Communist movement against Leninism, morphing into Lennonism after John Lennon's death. Mostly it has messages of peace along with lyrics from Lennon and The Beatles, although there has been some rather useless phrases added. Luckily no bad graffiti. It does get very busy with people wanting pictures in front of it, which slightly gets in your way of enjoying the messages on the wall.
  • Historical landmark that continuously changes, literally from one day to the next. I've been in Prague for 3 weeks now and have visited the wall multiple times. Each time, it's been almost totally different.
  • Not worth a special trip. A good diversion on the way to Mala Strana. Note: There is a water wheel close by that is worth seeing. It is near the Velkopřevorský Mlýn restaurant.
  • A wall with incohesive graffities that attracts a lot of hipsters. Prepare to be annoyed.
  • I mean if you are in Prague it's worth paying a visit to this place. It's few min walks from Charles bridge. You can take nice shots , the colourful wall could be a nice backdrop.
