15 Things to do in Prague 15: Enjoy some graffiti on John Lennon Wall
Graffiti and Europe has some connection as wherever in Europe we went we saw many of these graffiti art on walls but John Lennon wall is unique in its own way.
It was a normal wall till 1980 after which it was filled with Lennon inspired Graffiti and also has many Beatles song lyrics. This wall has many world peace messages and the best part is we can join in too and scribble some messages on the wall.
These were the things that we enjoyed the most and I am sure there must be many more things to do here.
