Such a proud thing for a scouser to see! Although The Beatles are loved world-wide, this wall thanks Lennon for his peaceful way of thinking about the world and humanity. As Prague was involved in the velvet revolution in 1989, this is a lovely way to give back and represent the peacefulness of the city. I would advise to see... More

We were moved by the history of the wall, created by the people of Prague on a nightly basis, and removed by the communist government every day. The wall became a symbol of hope "Give Peace a Chance'- It still exists today and is still being changed and added to. Including causes for peace, like Free Tibet. A small but... More

I love to walk to this wall while on Kampa, It is always different, full of amazing art, sometimes we are lucky and see some street musician... plus if you think about what this place represents, it makes it that much special...

The wall is everything more than I thought it would be. It has a sense of peace and love about it. Down a quiet street and worth a look.

Visited as part of the All inclusive Prague Tour. Would not have known about it but for the tour and so it was a pleasant surprise. There were lots of tourists visiting this site and taking photographs. Worth a visit

I loved this place! It is so easy to find being literally a stones throw from Charles Bridge and Kampa Island and so colourful. Yes it can be busy and perhaps a bit touristy, but what a testament to John Lennon and his music and what a testament to the Czech people as well. The colours and the graffiti are... More

The wall was something else to see. It looked so cool, grafity style but still awesome! There were quite a lot of people there so seeing everything was a bit tricky at times. What I was bummed about was that I had read online that you could add your own little greeting to the wall, but when we got there... More

The Lennon Wall is a colorful manifestation of Love as Peace where you can leave your own mark, if you wish. It was fun to read the inspirational phrases. It is part of the Prague 'Freedom History' however seems sort of out of place in the middle of an historical area. I guess it's how 'old' and 'new' mix. I... More

The origin of this wall based in its hatred and opposition to the Communists is a 5 star monument to freedom of thought. But I would think the originators must despair with what it has become. Fragments of something genuinely artistic remain in parts high up on the wall. The base is just a mish-mash of randomly sprayed splodges. I... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
