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?

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

You can light candles at chabad- it’s a 2 minute walk from the intercontinental. Intercontinental has easy to access stairs from the rooms to lobby (The hotel has 9 stories). From the lobby, you need to ask the front desk to open the door to the stairwell with a keycard. When we asked, the guy said “do you need me to open your room too”- he clearly knew our need (they get a lot of frum people). We taped our room door and put the don’t disturb sign so we wouldn’t have to get them to open for us.

I presume there is no eruv. Correct?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
