We saw this as part of a segway tour, but wouldn't go out of our way to find it. As the others have mentioned, it's become a scribble wall and lost it's artistic and historical significance. If you're really a huge Lennon fan and must see it, go, but I wouldn't recommend a special trip.

I couldn't agree more with the last reviewer. I fully appreciate what the wall represented to the Czech people in the past, and I made it a point to visit for that reason. Any messages that have been dedicated to Lennon or what he represented, however, are obscured by the "so and so was here" scribblings and/or other unrelated and... More

This wall may have been a work of art in the past, and I know it was an inspiration for the Czech people in the past, but it has been taken over by hacks pretending to artists. I walked 2 blocks out of our way to see this and that's about as much effort as I would recommend.

We came upon the graffiti wall as we walked round the castle end of Charles Bridge. It is basically graffiti dedicated to John Lennon - nothing more. Wouldn't feel I had missed one of Prague's must-see's if I hadn't seen it though.

We loved seeing the John Lennon Wall. Yes, it's all graffiti, but it's also art and history. This is worth checking out.

I happened upon this wall when I was wandering through the lane ways of Prague. I was more bemused by the host of expensive cars picking up dignitaries from across the road at a consulate at first. When I turned and noticed the wall I was bemused by the vast variety of messages. Some were nothing more than the usual... More

Not just a graffiti , Lennon wall has been the symbol of resistance and freedom, a place that people express their taught in different languages in different colors in different ideologies and different beliefs. The view is changing time by time. Liked being there.

If you look at it only from an aesthetic point of view you will see a painted wall like you can find many in each town, but if you look at the meaning of this wall for many young Praguese people during the Soviets occupation you can understand that this is one of the places where freedom from an idea...

It was much more than that. There was an atmosphere of love and friendship: complete strangers talking to each other and getting to know one another and visitors adding to the messages on the wall. If you go there at the right time there are even photography students who will take your picture for free and email it to you... More

I last visited this wall late last year and thought then they should just paint over it and Let it be. I am now of the opinion ot should be pulled down to stop people totally desecrating it all manner of meaningless garbage.Once a symbol of rebellion now a symbol of crass stupidity by people who just do not realise...
