This wall is so colorfull, so lively , so amazing! I loved the fact that people never draw over lennon's face. Shows some real respect. This wall is the perfect scene for portraits. But there is a photographer who was buzzing as to step aside to take pictures of people who were paying him. It bothered me because it is... More

In a town full of old sights its refreshing to see a modern all the time changing sight.Its also showing the will of citizens in Prag that despite of political situations they came and still are coming back and draw on the wall.

Very pretty art work! It really means something and I am so glad we visited it! There was a great atmosphere with someone playing the Beatles on his Guitar in front of it!

Somewhat over-hyped, the political and cultural story behind the John Lennon wall is frankly more interesting than the appearance of the wall itself. Yes it is picturesque in its own way but it's more sentimental graffiti than art. Wander past and grab a selfie but don't make this a destination unless you happen to have time to kill in this...

Having seen many pictures of this wall before, I was disappointed to see it no longer looked like anything I had expected. It looks like a wall just full of bad graffiti and very little to do with John Lennon. We only passed this by chance as we were looking for the bridge with the love locks. When passing there...

Being a Beatles fan, visiting the John Lennon Wall was a must for me. This attraction began with people painting a wall with John Lennon inspired graffiti on his death in 1980.The wall with its color, graphics and art served as an inspiration and hope for those living there. Although times have changed in Prague since Soviet occupation, the need... More

Being from Liverpool and loving all things Beatles I expected to be moved when going to see this wall. However, it was nothing more than a graffiti wall with little to make you emotional or provoke thought. A great idea that seems to have lost its way..people of Prague, dont let it get messed up. An awful busker to boot!!

The wall was recently painted over with white paint and now recent graffiti art now on show. All the famous John Lennon wall art is gone unfortunately. I don't know who and why the wall was painted over, as it was a tourist attraction. Go have a look but I can say there isn't much to see anymore. It is... More

I'm not sure if I'm a fan or not but it isn't offensive in anyway. I just mean that if I was here again or had friends in town I wouldn't be saying "Oh you have to see this" What I found moving is the location as its directly opposite the French embassy and 2 weeks ago we had the... More
