"Lennon Wall" Lennon Wall Tip by Raimix

Lennon Wall, Prague: 34 reviews and 79 photos


I found John Lennon wall accidently, when walking around cozy Mala Strana historical suburb. At first, it seemed interesting how the name of it is associated with Lennon. The story tells that Lennon never visited Prague, but his songs together with famous Beatles made big impression of that time Czech youth. Songs were more or less about freedom, but Czech land was communistic and such songs were stamped as ?anti-ideological?. Graffiti on wall (basically words, art about freedom, love, Beatles-mania) were often cleared by government, but new art always appeared in a few days again. So, this wall could be called as a rebel against former policy. First wall paintings were made in 1980?.

Directions: Kampa, Lesser Town.
