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).

There is no kosher store. There is not really any kosher food there at all aside from the restaurants. We were told by the Chabad that Mars brand candy is kosher.

Many products are made in England (under the vaads there) and shipped throughout Europe. I would check the labels of the food products for where they are manufactured.
