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

I was very disappointed with the wall. Underneath it was clear that there was some beautiful artwork which had been created. Unfortunately, there was a lot of random and silly graffiti covered over the beautiful work. I didn't get the hype around the wall.

The "imagine" wall or John Lennon wall is an inspiring place in an amazing city! I love Prague and this is truly an inspiring place to see.

I’d say this was a bit of an overhyped tourist attraction. It’s really just a wall with a lot of graffiti that changes frequently as tourists and locals continue to paint new graffiti on top of it. It’s an interesting place because of its history as an important point of definace and activist against the communist regime by young czechs... More

One of the items on my ‘things to do’ list in Prague was a visit to the famous Lennon Wall! My friend was there previously and showed me the most gorgeous pictures they took in front of it – so we went on a mission to find it! Once there, there were quite a few tourists milling around so we... More

The Lennon Wall has an important place in Prague history. After John's untimely death, fans started putting up graffiti from Lennon song lyrics and quotes to remember John. The police kept covering it up, but the graffiti would reappear just as quick as the police tried to hide it. Unfortunately, some people now use it to post ads that have... More

To set things right, I admire John Lennon but the 100' stretch of plaster wall that bears his name is simply a bunch of grafiti. Some of it is well done--other pieces not so much. The historical significance of the gathering place is lost on many and there's really little to see, evidence by the fact that this is one... More

I was looking forward to seeing this wall having seen it in numerous photos. Unfortunately it was not as it looked in the photos. It has become a wall of random graffiti where people write their names and meaningless rubbish. The wall is constantly changing so I'm sure some decent art appears every now and again but then it's not... More

The site is historical as our tour guide told us of how the people of the town put there efforts into making this memorial for John Lennon. Sadly, much of the wall has dissipated and looks not as pretty as before. If you're near the area, it's a great sight. I wouldn't, though, recommend going out of your way to... More
