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).

This thread seems dead.  Either people donít know Prague that well or they just donít look in this thread.

Def no DDf members from Prague.

I took the train, its long but comfortable and definitely worth the few dollars to upgrade to First Class. I ordered to go food from the Chabad restaurant and they packed it well.
