Protesting quotes and writings have been part of this wall from 1960s; after his death death, people started painting Lennon-inspired graffiti and quotes from Beatles‘ songs. The wall is alive, every time you walk by it will be different. Several times it was painted over with white paint, last time left only with „Wall is over“, thus starting a new wall.
- The narrowest street in Prague
The street itself does not have a name but oficially is the narrowest in Prague – its width ranges 50-70 cm. On both ends are traffic lights so you wouldn’t run into someone mid-way through this one way street.
