If you want to grasp the urban flair of a new place, there is no better way, than getting on your feet and roaming the streets and neighborhoods.

Although Prague is home to talented artists, the walls here are not as flooded with street art as in major European capitals like Berlin or Lisbon. However, if you put a little effort in your search, you will be rewarded by marvelous examples of urban arts, even here in Prague.

Colorful streets of Prague

Jan Palach & Josef Toufar Memorial Banner

Two relevant figures of the Communist resistance Jan Palach and Josef Toufar capture passers-by with their vigorous eyes. One a student, the other a Catholic priest. United in their fight against the Communist oppressors.

While Jan Palach set himself on fire January 16th, 1969 on Wenceslav Square as a symbol of protest against the Sovjet invasion, Josef Toufar was assassinated on February 25th, 1950 by the Czechoslovak secret police after rumors of a miracle in the church he was holding services at arose.

Both men died in the building on Legerova Street, the former Borůvkovo sanatorium, giving this place an important meaning. The building is in a dilapidated state. However, the city has announced plans to acquire the building and turn it into a memorial for the two well-known and much honored national icons.

Kampa park – Golden autumn days

This is a romantic piece from 2018 which covers a former blank wall at the entrance of Kampa Park by the water side. Fitting the season in which it was made, it shows a natural autumn landscape with a couple cuddling up under an umbrella.

Smíchovské nádraží – A Hotspot for Street art

Can you think of a better playground for street artists than train stations?
Have a look at Smíchovské nádraží and you will get what I mean. You cannot pass without noticing the numerous artworks scattered in and around the train station.

Na Knížecí – Hidden messages

Prague street art, train station, Za Ženskými domovy

Probably the most stunning footprint of urban artistry was composed on the building of an abandoned train station. The building does not exist anymore but the graffiti that used to be on it contained some powerful messages.

1. Criticism of prostitution and human trafficking
Women with naked bodies are offering sexual services to men.

2. Criticism of accelerated technological progress leading to mass consumption and pollution
In a world of permanent change, there is no need to fix things as long as they can be replaced no matter if machine or human being.

3. Criticism of media and internet, empowering the stupefaction of the people

Update: The buildings were torn down in 2020 due to reconstruction on the Na Knížecí area.

Karlovo náměstí – Metro station

Waiting for the metro at the station Karlovo náměstí passes by fast while observing a collection of artworks and trying to get the message behind. Biblical scenes are placed into the modern world and into a satirical or rather absurd context.

Jesus is portrayed in daily life situations, being photographed at his birth, checked by the ticket controller or ignored by smartphone obsessed people. All the scenes clearly criticize social media and the dangers of slipping into a parallel cyber world losing touch of reality, becoming ignorant and passive.

It’s a long walk from one end of the wall to the other, but you won’t feel it in your legs because your attention will be caught by the thoughtful messages of the artists, who transformed the Argentinská Wall into a visual zoo.

Vltava station

Vltava station is known for its splendid streetart. In late 2019 the walls were repainted, depicting the world map and the ongoing destruction of our environment. A very powerful statement in these days.

In 2018, we passed by the same house and were amazed about the transformation. We don’t know if it was done by the same artist or someone else took the opportunity to shoot the elephant into space.

Holešovice – Vnitroblock

If you are happen to find yourself in the Holešovice neighborhood, don’t miss out on Vnitroblock. This conceptually designed space attracts tourists and locals alike. Whatever the mood, this place can most likely satisfy it. The former industrial building harbors a cafe/bar, a shoe store, as well as multipurpose event and work spaces.
The terrace on the back side led us straight onto an open street arts gallery. Grab a cold beer and lose yourself in the colorful brick walls.

  1. Thanks a lot for recommending seeing this place next time we’re in Prague. We do love street art and so far our favorite was in Brussels (Cez’s choice) and Melbourne (mine). Prague looks amazing and I still don’t know how we could miss this area! Greetings from Gdańsk 🙂

    1. Hi Agness, nice to read from you again! Prague is one of the few cities that people never just visit once 😉 We’re keeping up with your Poland travels. Maybe that’s on our agenda for the next summer! Greets back from Kotor, Montenegro! 🙂
