Tato renesancni zed castecne ohranicujici zahradu maltezskeho velkoprevorstvi se nachazi na Velkoprevorskem namesti na Male strane, hned naproti francouzskemu velvyslanectvi.

V osmdesatych letech byla tato zed jednim z ostre sledovanych mist tehdejsiho Husakova komunistickeho rezimu. Ti, kteri se u zdi schazeli a pokreslovali ji napisy a obrazky, byli pronasledovani a nazyvani pochybnymi zivly ci agenty zapadnich kapitalistickych mocnosti. V roce 1988 masova shromazdeni studentu u zdi vyustila az v potycku s verejnou bezpecnosti a STB.

Zed a jeji vzhled se neustale meni - puvodni portret Johna Lennona je jiz nenavratne ztracen pod novejsimi vrstvami maleb a napisu. Prestoze zed byla nekolikrat zcela zabilena, v nasledujicich dnech se na ni znovu objevily texty a kvetinove obrazky. Kdyz nepocitame nektere stupidni napisy, do dnesnich dnu tak Lennonova zed v Praze zustava symbolem lasky a miru.

The Renaissance wall, a boarder of the Grand priority garden, is located at Velkoprevorske square, Mala Strana, opposite the French embassy.

In 1988 the wall was a source of irritation for the then communist regime of Gustav Husak. Young Czechs would write grievances on the wall and in a report of the time this led to a clash between hundreds of students and security police on the nearby Charles Bridge. The movement these students followed was described ironically as Lennonism and Czech authorities described these people variously as alcoholics, mentally deranged, sociopathic, and agents of Western capitalism.

The wall continuously undergoes change and the original portrait of Lennon is long lost under layers of new paints. Even when the wall was re-painted by some authorities, on the second day it was again full of poems and flowers. Today, the wall represents a symbol of youth ideals such as love and peace.
