Last year, I decided to visit the City of a hundred Spires: Prague! It was such a beautiful city, full of red roofed buildings, churches, cobbled streets, fairytale castles and the famous Charles Bridge.
I had such a wonderful time, exploring all the little streets and seeing what surprises were around every corner. I found the ‘old’ area of Prague stunning and being a little bit of a history addict, I felt I could spend a lifetime there. One of my favourite attractions which I stumbled upon while exploring was the John Lennon Wall.
It’s a colourfully creative spectacle, covered in Beatles lyrics, symbols of peace and artistic flair.
It started as just a humble wall, down a small street near the Charles Bridge. But since the 1980s, it has transformed into a cult classic of its streets!
After John Lennon was tragically murdered, he became a symbol of pacifism and the Czech youths decided to commemorate him with this wall. The wall is now a symbol for peace and freedom.
Despite numerous attempts to take it down, it doesn’t stay blank for long and the spray cans and marker pens will come back threefold!
It’s really worth checking out if you do find yourself in Prague and so here’s a little guide to tell you all about it.
