Parts of Prague were so overwhelming due to the amount of tourists that it was hard to enjoy (the sardine packed Astronomical Clock for one). To escape the crowds I tried to explore some off-beat areas of Prague.
The Lennon Wall is one such example of the off-beat portions of Prague. I visited the Lennon Wall early in the morning (I hear it gets crowded during the day) and there were hardly any tourists in the area. I absolutely love street art, and the creativity of the Lennon Wall did not disappoint. I didn't leave any notes behind, but there was a whole section of the wall covered in notes and wishes (can you spot the note written on a pad in the photo below?).
I also enjoyed finding hidden street art along Masarykovo street while I walked to the Dancing House and along Vaclavskeke street. Other interesting statues and works of art were located in the Kampa Park and the grounds of the Museum Kampa. Museum Kampa was the only museum I visited in Prague and I'm so glad I had the time to visit. The interior was incredible and the art was stunning (but very modern so maybe not for everyone). If you aren't into modern art, maybe it is best to save the cost of the entrance fee and rather visit the Kampa park, which is littered with statues. Check out those statues of faceless babies - creepy!

|It wouldn't be Bohemia without a VW Bus! This was parked right next to the Lennon Wall.|
|Yup. That is a pad.|
