In the centre of Prague, near the Charles Bridge, is a colorfully painted wall dedicated the John Lennon. This attracts the Beatles legend’s fans and followers of his messages of peace and respects for fellow man.
As such it became a destination for people opposed to the now-fallen communist regime in the Czech Republic. Although not large, the wall is a slice of history adorned with poems and declarations of love and peace. It is nicknamed the Wall of Narrators.
After Lennon’s death in 1980 the space was used for a symbolic tomb. People met, wore flowers and painted Beatles lyrics on the wall, which were painted over many times by the communist who saw it as a focus for rebellion.
Now Lennon Wall is a tourist attraction, bringing people from all over the world, some whom make their own artistic contributions. So the wall is constantly changing but unfortunately it now has little to do with the original idea for its inception.
