Delineations of Prague

The historical capital of Bohemia proper leaves too many photos to be taken. With that, it also seems impossible to capture the full beauty of modern Prague. The 4th Czechoslovakian Writers’ Congress in 1967 took a strong stand against a controlled state, this gallery is in honor of that meeting and the beginning of the “Prague Spring.”

Lennon Wall

Since the 1980’s, the John Lennon Wall in Prague has been filled with graffiti. Under the former Communist regime, led by Gustáv Husák, the wall was a place of peaceful, written demonstration. Czech authorities often engaged in clashes with students who were marked as agents of Western capitalism. Today, the wall reminds us of past accomplishments but also serves as a notice of current geo-political problems.
