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).

I was looking to book the IC for August, however it was showing no availability past April 27. I called them and after a few minutes of being on hold I was notified that the hotel will be changing managements. It will become a Fairmont hotel. It would of been nice if they would have a note on the website to save me time...

1) Can anyone advise if the shuls other than חב"ד are Orthodox? If so, to what level? 
2) Does חב"ד have a good relationship with the other Jewish community?

Can have a possibile stopover form 8AM to 6PM, is that too short for Prague?
Mostly interested in Altneushul, Mahral, Kli Yakor , Noda Beyhuda and if possibile Terezin concentration camp.
Is it difficult to drive, or doesn't make sense to rent a car?

TY

You can definitely visit the shul's, old cemetery, and the Noda B'Yehuda during that time. You don't need a car. Public transportation is quick, easy, convenient, safe, and cheap.
Terezin would be too far and not enough time.

You can drive there but I don't know about parking.

A few years ago I had a 6 hour connection in PRG. I kept my bags with the Left Luggage service. During that time I took the Bus+Train to Chabad Grill, Went on Free City Walking Tour, picked up my knapsack from Chabad Grill, and went back to the airport.

You can do the same plus the Noda Beyhuda. You'll have plenty of time.

I honestly think that the a car is more trouble then its worth.

FYI:
I, I flew into PRG last week, my flight had about 50 pax. No one else was in the airport.

Where is the meat from in The Chabad Grill? Is it imported or is it local shechita?
