The Lennon Wall
Perhaps one of Eastern Europe's most unlikely attractions,Prague's Lennon Wall has stood since the 1980s as a tribute to former Beatle and peace campaigner John Lennon.Things got started almost immediately after the singer's murder in 1980 when this otherwise unassuming wall near the Charles Bridge became a place for fans to demonstrate their grief,painting pictures and slogans attributed to the star.
Despite police efforts to erase the graffiti(Czechoslovakia,as it was then,was still under communist rule),the memorial wall kept reappearing and,along with Lennon's lyrics,the site became a symbol of hope and peace for the city's population.The tradition continues to this day,and along with gatherings on the anniversary of Lennon's death,tourists can frequently be observed adding their sentiments to the wall.
