Easy stop on the way to the city center. Worth stopping by to get an obligatory social media profile picture.

A place of peace and tranquillity, yet vibrant and loud! An excellent spot for a picture or two, as you will find out! Read about what the wall stands for before you visit and it will make much more sense when you see it!

Loved this colorful tribute to this great musician. A wall filled with hope and peace. You can add your own graffiti too!

This wall, covered with messages and pictures first painted as a memorial five years after John Lennon was killed, was the site of many student protests during the 1970s and 1980s. It is near the Charles Bridge.

Guite hard to find, and its mostly just some amateur graffits and names. There is little left of john lennon or the beatles, mostly high up on the wall where people cant reach to spray over them. I would spend my time doing something else.

Unless you are specifically a John Lennon fan and want to make a point of seeing this wall, there is no need to make a special trip.. It is after-all a wall covered with graffiti. However the graffiti is generally positive messages of love, political, Beatles lyrics etc and is quite interesting as you are passing through the Maltese Square... More

A lovely thing to see, especially as I guess it will be different every time you see it. Nothing to read re history around it but a very quick detour in your plans to visit this is worth it. the paintings (technically graffiti) are very tasteful and lovely to see. it is quite busy though.

A graffiti wall started in the 1970's as a protest to the occupation of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet government. The Soviets painted over the wall many times and the graffiti continued. Just below the Charles Bridge on the west side of the riverl.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood 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.
