Find gritty and colorful history amidst the romance of Malá Strana. The Lennon Wall’s expressive origins date back to the 1970s when it was known as the Wailing Wall and covered with the chalk-scribbled poetry of Czech people. Following Lennon’s assassination in 1980, the wall’s chalk was replaced by Lennon-inspired graffiti of lyrics and rallies for peace, love and freedom. Today, the wall remains a haven of creative expression with its messages and colors ever-changing like water in the Vltava.

 

All you need is love

Walking to or from the Lennon Wall, find the love locks cluttered on the gate over the small canal. The keys had been cast away into the canal’s waters by those pronouncing everlasting love.
