You’ve heard about the Lennon Wall, but there are a variety of other practice walls and legal walls throughout Prague. Perfect for those looking to hone their skills, as well as those who would like to take a tour of street art in Prague. The first thing you’re going to need is a 24 hour metro pass for the day, because you’re going to be travelling on public transportation a lot! You can pick these up at the main train station ( Hlavni Nadrazi ) and that’s where we’ll start our journey. And just to be clear, this will be a bit of a journey, most all of the big legal walls with some of the nicest pieces are pretty far from the center. Don’t worry, they’re safe areas of the city, but you’ll be utilizing buses, metros and trams to get around.
Disclaimer: There may be wrong or outdated information. I recommend to always verify the legality of walls with local authorities. I do not take responsibility in any illegal activities performed based on the information on this site. Basically. If you’re planning on spraying on a wall, and some cop doesn’t like you for whatever reason. Don’t blame me.
Your first stop will be at Smichov where you can check out the wall on the side of MeetFactory . Meet factory is a multifunctional space full of art studios, a gallery, a concert venue, and also a giant mural which changes every few months on it’s wall. You’ll ned to get the 197 bus from in from in front of the Smichov Metro station, and you’ll be stopping at Lihovar. Then walk to MeetFactory from here.
From there you will be heading further to West Prague, so hop on the 197 and your destination is now the Belarie Stop.
From Belarie you can now see you’re also at a tram stop. Take the 17 tram next to Modranska rokle.
Get back on the Tram 17 again (or just walk if you’ve got the map open in your smart phone) to the Barrandov Bridge. Tram stop you are going to is now Pristaviste . As you can see, it’s a bit of a walk, but there’s a place under the bridge which will be filled with street art and graffiti. (optional)If you cross the bridge you can see on the other side, to the left down a walking trail, what looks to be an abandoned swimming pool or something with a bunch of stairs climbing into the sky. It too, has been taken over with new color.
So, now you want to get back to either Pristaviste, or Smichov. If you’re not too good at navigating then just go back the way you came to Pristaviste. From here, take the number 1 tram back to Hlavni Nradrazi. From Hlavni Nadrazi take metro to Florenc. (alternately if you walk back to smichov, you can take the metro there directly to Florenc ) .
From Florenc you can take the tram number 8 just one stop to Bila Labut, from here you can take the 14 just one stop to Tesnov. ( Or alternatively just walk across the main street outside of Florenc in the direction of the McDonald’s under the bridge ) Here you will find a large legal wall (as far as I’m aware it’s only open to spraying on the weekends, but don’t believe me, check to make sure the info about the wall is current!) under the bridge.
From here you can walk back to the McDonald’s which is nestled under the bridge, and in front of the park area, beyond the random homeless person feeding the pigeons you’ll find bus number 135 Florenc. See that Tv Tower on the distant horizon, you’re headed in that direction. You’ll be taking the bus 3 stops to Namesti Miru. Once you’re there, you’re going to go back down into the metro station (longest escalator in Czech. Yay!), and take it one stop to Jiriho Z Podebrad . Once out of the metro station, look up in the sky and turn around in a circle until you see the TV Tower. You’re going to go up into that thing. Walk towards it.
Once here, you can go inside (you do have to pay to get in) and there is a place to view the whole city. You can go to the restaurant floor and get some overpriced ice cream too if you wish!
From here, it’s only a hop skip and a jump away from our little shop of paintings, sculptures, and silk screened tshirts :) Stop on in, and say hi, and let me know how your journey went. We’re located at Cajkovskeho 22, just a 3 minute walk from the tv tower!
