Lennon’s wall Prague

Lennon’s wall in Prague (in Lesser Quarter, near Kampa) is a colorful graffiti like oasis which one wouldn’t expect in the hub of baroque Prague. Just a few hundred meters far from the Charles Bridge, this Czech “wailing wall” has been a symbol of Czech unsatisfaction with the previous regime. Started as a place where lovers could write poems for each other, but changed into a protest place after the death of John Lennon. Hated by the authorities, which were regularly covering the graffiti like paintings, the wall has been undergoing many changes. However, never stopped being loved by young people and students, who often come by just to sit and have a toast to the eternal motto  – Make love, not war!!
