A good film retailer: fotoskoda. In Vodisckova street. There is a tram stop just in front of the shop.
I don't know if they have a lab.

Yes, the lab in Foto Skoda is definitely a first-choice.

But they deal with huge amount of films (mostly color negative and E6) every day, so I expect they apply a very simple procedure in id11.

You lucky person!

Yes fotoskoda is a great place - sells Foma products too. Funnily enough they are more expensive in the Czech Republic. You could make a pilgrimage to the Foma factory.

The Foto Škoda website claims that they can develop B&W film in T-Max, ID-11 or Microphen. Also consider Ultralab (http://ultralab.cz) (T-max developer, not far from Foto Škoda). This is my favourite place for E-6 at the moment. Thalia Picta (thaliapicta.cz) is another highly regarded lab. Foto Oto (http://www.fotooto.cz/) can process Fomapan R 100 B&W reversal film.

FRDRX - Thank you my friend for those other recommendations! It seems though that the links for Thalia Picta and Ultralab do not work....any thoughts? I've done a google search for the names, but I am having trouble with the Czech translations to english via google. Would you have the links for them on hand? thanks again anyway for you ideas! cheers, sam

I've no idea why you can't click through. The hyperlinks seem to work okay to me. Anyway, try these:
http://www.ultralab.cz/
http://www.thaliapicta.cz/
http://www.fotoskoda.cz/
