A charming, cool setting in a peaceful neighborhood for reflecting on past resistance and current hopes for peace. Colourful and evolving.

This is a must see spot. Very interesting to see in the day and at night. Our bike tour at night had us stop by the Lennon Wall. Our tour guide brought a pen and took a picture of us as we add some verbiage to a very chaotic space. We also saw a group of (kids) climbing on each... More

Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs. In 1988, the wall was a source of irritation for the communist regime of Gustáv Husák. Young Czechs would write grievances on the wall and in a report of the time this led to a clash between hundreds... More

Wouldn't recommended if you don't know much about John Lennon. You can take some funky pics but that's about it. Wouldn't stay longer than 10 minutes though.

A very beautiful place to visit and take some pictures. But do not visit it on weekends because it will be too crowded and it will be almost impossible to captured a good picture of the wall.

This took us a while to find, and wasn’t worth the trouble. What it stood for originally does not translate anymore, there was no hint of any kind of positive message or anything relating to John Lennon. Clearly it is added to regularly, so it each visitor will see a different version of it, on the day we visited it... More

Located near the Charles Bridge this is a wall covered in graffiti and on which messages were left in the past and are still left in the present. In the middle of the wall you can find business cards, napkins, pictures, mirrors with writings on them, wishes, memories, desires, all right there on a wall for others to read and... More

We visited here after visiting Charles Bridge and used google maps to locate it, if we hadn't used this I think we may have struggled. Most people reviewing it don't seem to understand the reason behind its existance or how important this wall is in the history of communism and prague. The wall itself is great to read and looks...

Unlike some others, I believe that if you go to the Lennon Wall knowing its history and the reason behind its existence, it can still be a powerful symbol to those who visit. We visited with our teenage daughters, and it was a great opportunity for them to learn about the struggles of the Czech people under Communist rule, and... More

Located near Charles Bridge is this wall that looks like any other city wall completely covered in mindless graffiti. It took us a few minutes before we even picked anything in relation to Lennon or the Beatles. Then we spotted a couple of stencil printed head shots of John Lennon, and some lines from songs we recognised. What may have... More
