Lovely walk across the bridge to the colorful grafetti Lennon Wall. There's always a singer/guitar player crooning Lennon ballards. Very emotional.

I hadn't heard of this until we were taken to it on our walking tour. It's worth a look and is pretty cool and a good photo to have in your album!

Great attraction that stands out from all the other sights in prague! You can write whatever you want on this wall, as long as it's in the spirit of peace, love and John Lennon :)

We wanted to see this place after seeing cool pics. But it was so hard to find! And after asking we were more lost, people where saying different things haha.

It is a mural on a wall, with notes and messages for peace. It is located on a back street, so visiting this does take you off the tourist trail which is nice. The wall was quite busy when we visited.

Its almost updated daily, with lots of post it notes as well as paintings etc. Loved it for what it stands for. its worth the visit. Just off the Charles bridge. Interesting to think that the French embassy opposite used to photo all that visited.

Graffiti artists painted it when Lennon died, and people still leave flowers there, and you'll likely find someone playing a guitar and singing in front of it. Charming. The communist government wasn't thrilled by the actions of the young people doing it, but since it was across the street from the French Embassy, all they could do was watch.

I felt kinda hippie when I got there! The wall is full of colours and it does look nice! People keep putting notes and drawing new stuff on it. Buskers singing some old songs add to the charm:)

We didn't even realize this existed until we saw vendors selling photos of this wall. So we found it and visited. It is really nice to see and around the corner is the John Lennon pub. Worth a visit.
