It felt like being in a fairy tail. The castle that lit up at night, surrounded by the medieval architecture, walking along the cobbled streets, eating hearty food, drinking Czech beer, and hot chocolate- which was the most gooiest, and richest chocolaty kind on the planet!
Having visited all the main attractions including Prague Castle, Old Town Sq, Wenceslas Sq, St Charles’s Bridge, Petrin Hill and the incredible piece of modern architecture- the dancing building- a Gothic and Art Nouveau architectural stock.
Seeing the John Lennon Wall was incredible. Since the 1980’s this wall has belonged to him, as he was seen as a hero to the youth of Central and Eastern Europe during the totalitarian era. Prior to this, when communism ruled western pop songs were banned, especially Lennon songs. When he was murdered in 1980 he became a sort of hero to some of the young and his picture was painted on this wall, along with graffiti defying the authorities. Graffiti first in the form of Beatles lyrics and odes to Lennon, then people started to paint their own feelings and dreams on the wall. It was inspirational reading all of the messages, and people to this day still add to it.
