This wall is a must-see for travelers to Prague! It's very well known but not easy to find so just ask someone. When we were there, there were a large group of college kids who starting singing Lennon songs and it was memorable!

Great site to see - free - beautiful colours and graffiti art..! Remember to take a marker pen so you can add/write your name and date on the wall. Took some great photos..! It was 2013.

It was a nice surprise to see when we found it. Interesting. It stands for a different side of Prague, more in keeping with Cerny sculptures than the churches. A contrast.

The john lennon wall is truly an overwhelming visit! When you first approach the wall, it looks just like a spray painted and drawn on wall. But when you get closer, you see the heart and passion put into this wall by peoples of all generations. Yes there are people that write stupid things on the wall, but in general... More

It's an interesting wall, and great to take pictures of the graffiti. The John Lennon pub is close by.

if you love John Lennon, the Beatles, freedom, etc. you MUST go. Not only will you get wonderful pictures, but you will feel just as liberated as everything you see on the wall.

It's not what it used to be anymore... It is sad that people hadn't look after it... I visited it yesterday for the second time (first was in 2008) and I was perplexed when I saw people writing their names on it and what shocked me was a guy that was being paid by tourists to let them spray it...

So I love John Lennon and the Beetles just as much as the next guy, but this wall was rather disappointing. Really it's just a graffiti filled wall with a bunch of tourists posing for pictures and a busker. Really overhyped on this site and not worth going out of your way for.

The wall features some great graffiti and it's history is a nod to a desire for free speech during times of oppression. Some decent buskers singing Lennon's songs add to the atmosphere

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
