Once a plain wall, after John Lennon’s death in 1980 an image of the musician and pacifist was painted here as a sign of rebellion against the freedom-denying Communist regime. Soon the wall was filled with graffiti and messages praising freedom and peace.
Despite repeatedly having been painted over by the authorities, the wall would be filled with graffiti again in a matter of hours.
Communism was over in 1989 and the wall has remained as a symbol of peace.
Located in Malá Strana, on Velkopřevorské náměstí.
