Lennon Wall Tips (19)

John Lennon Wall

This wall has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles songs since the 1980s.

It's still a symbol of ideals such as love and peace.

It's located at Velkopøevorské námìstí (Grand Priory Square), Malá Strana, and owned by the Knights of Malta.

In couple minutes walk from Lennon Wall you will find John Lennon pub with the Yellow Submarine images.

"Imagine All The People..."

Having seen the pictures posted by VT members, it was interesting to see how additions by numerous visitors transformed the look of the wall in a matter of months.  It took 2 jaunts into the area to find the wall.  The end of the Charles Bridge was blocked off due to construction.  Found it pretty easy going down the steps on the left into Na Kampe, walking about halfway down the square and turning right, followed the road to the next intersection, turned left and there it was on the left.

Memento mori?

The 'Lennon Wall' is worth seeking out, if only for its sociological and cultural import. Tucked away in Mala Strana, it is the garden wall of the Grand Priory of the Maltese Knights. when Lennon was murdered, it became a sort of shrine to hs memory. Graffiti was regularly removed, and replaced, but it now seems to have become tolerated if not openly accepted. Perhaps its value as a tourist sight has been recognised, or perhaps the authorities have realised there is little point in pursuing the matter.

It's on Velkoprevorske Namesti.

John Lennon Wall

The wall holds messages of peace, freedom and hope. People started writing messages in graffiti when the nation was still under communist rule. The wall was repainted several times by the authorities but this didn’t stop the graffiti reappearing.

Lennon`s wall

This wall is close to Kampa park at Velkoprevorske namesti. It`s named after John Lennon because there used to be large graffiti of this famous singer. But the wall is living - it`s in permanent change and the Lennon picture is gonne. But people are writing there their ideas, wishes and thoughts for more than 30 years. This wall is symbol of freedom and at every special occasion people are burning candles there.

New addition

We walked past the Lennon wall when we were in Prague in March '06 and thought we would have to see it again but we were surprised to see this bust of John Lennon fixed to the wall a little further down from where the mural is on our return in December '06.

John Lennon was not here!

The Lennon Wall is not actually that far off the beaten path - it is a handy detour to/from the castle from the old town. John Lennon never came here (as far as I know!) but the wall is called the Lennon wall because originally Beatles lyrics seemed to dominate the graffiti that covered the wall. It became a monument towards free speech - in communist times the wall became the soapbox of the repressed people of Prague and people risked arrest and imprisonment to get their message across. Nowadays the graffiti has gone down hill - it is in the "Pedro e Giulia 24/01/2005" league and the usual nationalist statements about ethnic minorities. Worth a brief look but not worth a special trip.

Strange find in embassy area!

The John Lennon Wall
I'm not sure how off-the-beaten track this really is, but we were certainly the only people around when we stumbled across it on a Monday morning.
John Lennon was a folk hero in Communist Czechoslovakia, and the wall grew to fame in the 80s. Apparently it's still a meeting place for fans on the anniversary of his death.
It's opposite the French Embassy in a beautiful tree-lined square, just next to Kampa Island.

For or against

If you're a fan of Lennon don't miss this mural / graffiti dedicated only to this 'legend'. You cant miss it if you follow these instructions. When passing from Charles Bridge, lookiing south you'll see that the Vltava river splits into a stream which is called "The devil's stream". Just before the foot of the next small bridge (100 metres down from Charles Bridge) there's a water Mill. The graffitti are just round the corner on the walls of 'The grand Priory of the Knights of Malta' Be aware that not all written messages hail John Lennon. You might be offended with some of them.

Find peace at the Lennon wall

Not far from the Charles bridge (west side, Lesser Town, Kampa) you can find the John Lennon Wall, a spontaniously formed monument to commemorate this great artist. A nice place to get away from the crowd and have a moment of peace and reflexion: All you need is love.
