  The Lennon Wall was once a regular wall in Prague, Czech Republic. But since the 1980’s it has been inundated with John Lennon-inspired street art and lyrical excerpts from Beatles songs. This attraction is for anyone who has ever... more been moved by the expression “all you need is love.” In 1988, the wall was an annoyance to the communist regime of Gustav Husak. The Czech people would write objections on the wall, illustrating a mindset that would soon lead to a clash between hundreds of students and police on the nearby Charles Bridge. The state of mind these students had was satirically dubbed as "Lennonism" and Czech authorities described these people as alcoholics, mentally deranged, sociopathic, and agents of Western capitalism. Today, the wall represents a symbol of progressive ideals that align with love and peace. The wall is the property of the Knights of the Maltese Cross, who allow the graffiti to continue. This is a great place to check out because it makes strong implications about our contemporary social and political landscape, and how recent decades have shaped our world. Lennon Wall is a little slice of peaceful radicalism at its best.
