As the Lennon Wall is in constant change, these photos captured what it looked like on the 10th of January, 2016. I also have photos from my previous trip to Prague, taken on the 1st of June, 2012 – when it looked completely different (not shared here). In fact, in November 2014, the wall was painted over entirely in white (by a group of art students, who did it on the 25th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution). So it is utterly different to what it was the last time I saw it — just as it will be the next time I go. The only thing that remains is the spirit of the wall, and the inclusion of John Lennon in both images and text.
If you want to visit the wall yourself (and you certainly should if you’re ever in Prague) it is located at Velkopřevorské náměstí (Grand Priory Square) in the Malá Strana district of the city (Lesser Town of Prague).
In easier words, it’s to the left of Charles Bridge coming from Old Town. See map below, or ask other tourists when you’re there – most people sort of know the right direction and then just stumble upon it. I took the “back way” which takes you down from the Bridge before it technically ends, half across the square below and over a tiny bridge (complete with “love-locks” and a wheel in the water, guarded by a troll) and then it is just around the corner. But there are other ways to get there too, of course.
And please let me know if you have a favourite photo or grouping of photos!
