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?
