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...

Just a wall with random graffiti with nearly no content related to John Lennon at all. The surrounding area is nice though - I especially enjoyed seeing the Maltese Consulate near the wall - how can I get a job (and perks) like that?

The Lennon wall is a must see! It's just an ordinary wall full of images and quotes. There are portraits of John Lennon as well as Beatles song lyrics. I recommend you take a bottle of spray paint or some paint brushes so that you can include your message on the wall.

It's probably not worth going out of your way to find it, but if you stroll by while heading to the Charles Bridge, it's a cool place to snap a few photos. The musician playing in front wasn't great, but his Lennon covers did add to the ambience. I think it also depends on the latest graffiti, which changes constantly.... More

There are some nice parts of the wall, but really it is just graffiti, most of which is badly done, some of which is really lovely street art. There are some nice photo ops if you are travelling with a significant other though.

While we were there someone was sitting in front of the wall playing a guitar and a group of people were tagging. We were just wandering past but glad we happened upon it! I got some great photos of the kids. Don't make it a highlight of your trip but if it can be made "on your way" somewhere, swing... More

We went expecting something wonderful but unfortunately there is barely anything having to do with John Lennon left on the wall, as it is all covered in graffiti and sharpie signatures. I am sure it was beautiful and symbolic at one point.
