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.

I used them we had a great tour guide. She said she isn't Jewish but has some Jewishness through her fathers side.
