Colorful Streets of Prague – Complete Guide to Prague’s Street Art

If you want to catch the urban atmosphere of a new place, there is no better way, than roaming the streets and its neighborhoods.

Although Prague is an artsy metropole, it can still take quite some time to discover interesting pieces of street art. This city is not as flooded with street art as other big cities like Berlin or Lisbon. However, if you put a little effort in your search, you will be rewarded by marvelous examples of urban arts.

This article provides a splendid collection of the most beautiful and notorius street art around Prague. As we still live here, we made it our goal to update this list whenever we spot a new baby. We hope you enjoy the photos and get the chance to follow our footage. In case you came across something which is not covered here, we would be happy if you leave us a photo and location in the comments.

Enjoy the ride through Prague’s street art scene!

Smíchovské nádraží – A Hotspot for Street art

Can you imagine a better playground for street artists than train stations?

If you’re looking for a vivid train station, you can’t go past Smíchovské nádraží without noticing the numerous artworks scattered around this area.

Golden autumn days

This is a brand new piece from 2018 which now fills 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 landscape in autumn with a couple cuddling up under an umbrella.

Hidden messages

Prague street art, train station, Za Ženskými domovy

Probably the most stunning footprint of urban artistry is composed on the building of an abandoned train station. It consists of three pieces designed by three different artists, whereas the message reflects similar criticism of society.

1. Criticism of prostitution and human trafficking

Women with naked bodies are offering sexual services to men who pay them.

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 with no consideration if it’s a machine or a human being.

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

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.

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 send the elephant to space.

  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 🙂

    • 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! 🙂

    • Hi Ross,
      Unfortunately, we don’t know any artists personally but there is a lot of art to discover and you may even see artists in action.
