Discover the Lennon Wall in the historic centre of Prague, Czech Republic. In the 1980's the youth of the city started to cover the wall in Beatles lyrics and street art depicting John Lennon. This caused great annoyance to the communist regime, and led to a clash on the Charles Bridge in 1988 between students and police in a movement which became ironically known as "Lennonism".

The wall is a short walk from the Charles Bridge in Grand Priory Square, Malá Strana.
