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).

Right that was my question. I booked the Intercontinental, trying to figure if the hotel, or Chabad offers babysitting etc..

I'm sure you can buy the food from chabad and bring it to the hotel or something like that...
A possible option would be to get a goy to bring the stroller down the block but ask your LOR about that. But it's really a great city to be at for shabbos!

If you are staying in King David they have daily tours.
Dushi is a waste of money, he charges $80 per hour min. 4 hours.

Do you know if you can join their tour even if you are not staying with them and what they charge?

Call them, they have a bunch of tours each day - 1-2-3 hours.
Probably could join even if not staying with them.

I did the free walking tour from the Discover Prague Tours (Yellow Umbrella). Was pretty good. Though not much emphasis on the Jewish part.

hashgacha wise Shelanu is much better. I never had King Solomon so I can't say which has better food. But Shetland was very good. I ate there a few times over my stay.

I just ordered Shabbos meals at Shelanu, for in a few weeks time. The site redirected me to PayPal to pay, but it never gave me the option to put in any of my info in their site, how do they know who paid or not? Didnt even ask for my name or email.

Just got this from my kid's school:

Dear Parents and Alumni,
This important notice has come to our attention, in as much that it is not Yeshiva related we feel that its important enough that we share it with you. Especially since people frequently travel in the summer months.

*"להסיר מכשול"*

ב-פראג יש מסעדת טרפות בשם
       *קינג סלומון*
שמפרסמת את עצמה בתור
*כשרות בד"ץ המהר"ל*
.ועוד שמות מוזרים ללא שום גוף רבני שעומד מאחורי השגחה זו

בביקור שהיה לאחרונה במשחטות בפראג ע"י אחד הבדצי"ם המהדרין בארץ (פרטים בפרטי )הייתי נוכח בביקור.
התברר שאפילו לא מנסים לשחוט העופות למסעדת טרפות זו והשוחט כביכול זה אדם ערל שמתחבש כחרדי בשם אהרון גינצברגר חונזה בשמו המקומי.

.וזה הרבה אנשים חרדים מהארץ וחו"ל ייראי שמים אוכלים יום יום טרפות ממש

.הרבנות בישראל הוציאה בעבר הודעות על מסעדה זו וכן הרבנות המקומית

כעת שוב בחזרתי מפראג
.אני רואה שלא בוצע שום תיקון למכשלה זו השם ירחם מלא חרדים אוכלים טרפות

.כל מי שיש בידו לסייע לתיקון עניין זה זכות הרבים תעמוד בעדו

.על החתום

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

perhaps Chabad if he's SZ Krishevsky. So Shelanu and Dinitz are the main Kosher options, it seems.

prague is central to the europe summer tour locations, so perhaps it's a common stopover.
