A little well hidden and hard to find, but well worth the effort. Don't mistake the small padlock- covered bridge wall nearby for the JL wall - walk around the corner and you'll see it. Shame cars are parked in front of it - reduces photo opportunities. Loved the colours, and the singer/guitarist gently performing a few JL tunes. Quirky,... More

As part of our walking tour, we spent a few moments beside the wall and enjoying the murals, paintings and Lennon inspired graffiti. It was a place for disgruntled folk to air their grievances against the government and was a source of irritation to them in 1988. The wall was painted over in 2014 with new additions since so is...

The wall of John Lennon is a place of freedom, expression and youth, with thousannds of people flocking to put their stamp or graffiti signage there. The wall is never the same 2 days running, with the sheer volume of people posting their personal views, thoughts, messages almost every hour. Nice tribute pub at the side of the wall, this... More

Musicians singing. Photoshop happening. People admiring. That's the John Lennon Wall. If you're into photography, this is definitely a place you should stop by in Prague. The love locks and park are right nearby. So plenty to see in addition to the wall.

colourful and evocative if you think about the origins of the wall. Constantly changing. Don't be put off by the Lennon connection- you don't even have to know who he was to visit here!

Really cool spot! We visited at the beginning and end of our trip, and could already notice some changes/new additions. You don't have to be a fan of John Lennon or the Beatles to enjoy and appreciate this piece of living art, and tribute to peace, love & freedom.

This wall if costantly changing peace of art. You can look this wall as "just a wall", or tribute to John Lennon or place where students used to protest agains communist regime. Either way, this wall is special, because it is a living art. Every day there is something new.

I passed by this wall during our segway tour. It was a beautiful wall, and you can stay for a couple of minutes if you want. However, not much interesting if you are not a fan of John Lennon or the Beatles.

Very cool! Our bike guide brought spray paint where we could write a little something on the wall. Anyone who visits can add their contribution if they wish, therefore the wall is ever-changing.

The wall is beautiful as a "living" memorial to John Lennon. It is constantly receiving new tributes, in the form of fresh spray paint. Visitors and tour groups make this a busy spot at times, and the music of travelling minstrels playing Beatles tunes may add to the atmosphere while you gaze at the wall.

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.
