About John Lennon Memorial Wall In Prague
John Lennon Wall Prague represents a symbol of peace and love. Earlier, the wall was a plain wall, but during the 1980s, artists started creating graffiti inspired by John Lennon and writing lyrics of various Beatles’ songs. The Sovereign Military Order of Malta owns the John Lennon Wall Prague and still allows the artists to create graffiti and have made this wall a piece of art.
According to John Lennon Wall history, it is said that Gustáv Husák’s communist regime did not really like the wall. The youth of the Czech Republic started writing grievances on the wall which then led to a huge clash between the students and Czech police near Charles Bridge. While this movement was termed by students as “Lennonism”, the Czech police considered this as a mental act with the support of western agents of capitalism.
On the 5th Anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, a group of students painted over the John Lennon Wall with white and a simple text on it “Wall is over”. After this, the Knights of Malta filed a complaint against students, which was later redacted. One can still find the wall murals there, but instead of “Wall is Over”, one can find “War is Over” written on it.
While it is still legal to create graffiti on John Lenon Graffiti Wall Prague, the authorities have tried to stop by painting the wall white many times. But within a couple of hours of painting it new pictures and images appear on the wall, making it impossible for the authorities to keep it graffiti free. Now they have given up on the vendetta and let the graffiti remain.
One can join walking tours that will take its passengers to the John Lennon Wall along with other famous tourist spots in the city. Locals and tourists often visit the John Lennon Wall art and draw an art piece of their own. The theme across the wall is love and peace. Even though it’s just a simple wall, the John Lennon Memorial Wall will always be a huge part of Prague history.

Trip to Republic Of MauritiusIt was wonderful memorable trip to Mauritius with my wife. I would like to thank TT for seamlessly planning the package. Specially liked how Vikas and Ameen replied to my queries before the trip.
Trip to Republic Of MauritiusVikash organized wonderfully for the trip. He was so patient and always available on phone for any questions. The way he explained the plans gave us confidence to move forward. We enjoyed our honeymoon at Mauritius very comfortably. Agents were very professional and were available all the time. The direct flight from Mauritius to Chennai got canceled by Air Mauritius forcing us to travel a day ahead of the plan. The airways service was very disappointing. Otherwise a perfect trip.
Trip to EuropeWe Travelled to 3 Countries i.e Croatia, Hungary, Czech Republic and trust me it was one of the most comfortable and managed trip i had ever gone and its all because of Our Destination Expert, Ms. Mayuri from Duniya Safari who was very quick and easy to approach. She understood our requirements very quickly and accurately and arranged everything as per our needs which made our vacation really comfortable and tension free. I really thank Travel Triangle because of whom we were able to get into contact with one of the best Europe tour travel agency, as indeed their team work was amazing which includes their Visa team as well. The entire team was very Polite and Patient to handle each and every query we had.
Trip to Republic Of MauritiusThis was our first trip with Travel triangle and the experience was good altogether . We received proper response from the agents whenever we approached them. Due to flight delay we lost a day but thanks to travel triangle for shifting the iternary which was missed to the leisure day .
Trip to Republic Of MauritiusOur trip to Mauritius was well planned by the Timeless Trips team. The execution the plan and the communication could be a lot better. The hotels and airlines were arranged well. But when we missed one of our flights and tried to communicate with Timeless Trips, we had no response. Also one of our guides on shore for a tour had no clue of what he was meant to do and had no idea of what was going on. That being said it was a very economical and pleasant trip and we would use Timeless trips again when the need arises.
Trip to Republic Of MauritiusEverything was worth the money, we had the best time with amazing food and many awesome hotel freebies...just one thing the flight got cancelled and we were not aware of the steps to take...although the travel agents told us what to do, a little more help would have been good...neways it was the best experience...we even got one more day of stay for free cuz the flight got cancelled
Trip to Republic Of MauritiusSuperb beach. There is a lot of variation(package). You should Negotiation with the agency. I made the mistake by trust his words. Always get 2-3 quote and compare it. First check with other sites/agency with the price offered. Also confirm the places and entrance fee is added in the package or not. Mauritius is expensive for flight ticket, All goods were imported from India and China. More over looks like India only. But it has crystal clear beach and good water sports activities. Good place to relax with peaceful mind.
Trip to Republic Of MauritiusWe had a few issues with your counterparts at Mauritius i.e Island walk agent Nalini, with whom we had to reschedule trips twice due to poor guidance, otherwise a great trip
