On our last full day in Prague we walked over the Charles Bridge and turned left to find the Lennon Wall.
The Wall is a symbol of freedom, rebellion and coexistence.
From my guide book I had learnt that the wall was a symbol in the days of Communist rule. After Lennon’s assassination the wall was decorated with his image. Every time the images were painted over by the secret police they would reappear! This how this wall earned its title of the Lennon Wall.
Sadly there were no buskers singing Beatles’ song when we visited even this day was the anniversary of John Lennon’s death in New York in 1980.

The gift shop
Through the gate we we went to the gift shop. Behind the wall there was a large garden with a lawn covered in leaves. A gardener was busy raking the leaves into impossibly large piles.
The shop had a fabulous selection of original pottery and sculptures from local artists. After spending time looking at all the art we gravitated to the Lennon Wall items and I added two ‘fridge magnets to my growing collection!
This is the rest of our last day in Prague – TBA
