Kosher list

1) always keep a few krona change in your pockets for bathroom breaks. It costs about $0.15-$0.25 USD (in Krona) per visit no one will let you in for free. (besided the chabad restaurants).

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).

Got a Eurotrip coming up in September.
Spending 3 nights in Prague Thurs - Sun
Just found out that the Shabbos I'm there is the Maharal's yartzeit!
Should I expect it to be crazy?
Does everyone flock to Prague for the yartzeit or is it just gonna be like any other Shabbos?
Nothing major

Can you light shabbos candles in say, the Intercontinental? Someone wrote its "shabbos friendly". Does that mean they have keys for the bedrooms?
