2) You can rent boats to go on the Vlatlava river, not sure the cost. You can also rent "City Bikes" in the old town square for 300 Czech krona. (About $12) for 2 hours & every additional hour its 50 krona which is about $2 USD.

3) All Jewish attractions close at 6pm (or 4 in winter).

Does anyone have any recommendations for a budget friendly hotel that is good for Shabbos? (lower rate than the Intercontinental)

I was advised that the Chabad Shelanu restaurant has the best Hashgacha. When I booked it they replied that the meals are actually in the Chabad house rather than the restaurant. I'm sure it will be an experience. Price was good, though.

Dinitz posts that they are under the Chug Chasam Sofer from Bnei Brak as well as a local Prague Hashgacha, but I had already paid for Chabad when I realized that.

I'll post when I return.

i spent time in prague and i know some inside info on the hashgacha. King solomon doesnt have much of a hashgacha, i know the owner and i wouldnt rely on it. - Dinitz is a community restaurant and i wont go and say its bad hechsher but the mashgiach is a גר and some dont rely on it, not only because of the mashgiach. And chabad has a good hechsher. - Rabbi is a mashgiach and i know him as well and i would rely on it.

As i understand correctly they just moved to a new location , its prob in the same area but it makes sense that the meal is in the chabad and not in restaurant since the restaurant is quite small.
