Our secret tip for an interesting place to visit near (5 minutes’ walk) our 3* hotel in the centre of Prague which is literally a pilgrimage site where you can pay tribute to a legend. The history of this wall dates back to the 1960s when it served as a canvas for people to protest with slogans targeted against occupation of Czechoslovakia and the socialist regime. After the death of John Lennon (†1980), his name appeared on this wall written in chalk and it was then that the immortality of this place was born in the form of spiritual and artistic freedom. People brought and still bring flowers, the wall is gradually added to with more and more wonderful graffiti and inscriptions inspired by John Lennon and snippets of Beatles songs, and despite having been painted over several times, it still lives and breathes the spirit of freedom. There is no entrance fee.
