|The Rudolfinum is one of the most significant Neo-Renaissance buildings in Prague. Located in the Old Town, it is set in a commanding position by the Vltava River.
The Rudolfinum was constructed in 1876-1884 and contains a couple of stunning concert halls, a gallery, library, shop, and a traditional café.
The Rudolfinum is the seat of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, who perform in the grand Dvořák Concert Hall.
The Dvořák Hall is one of the two largest concert halls in Prague (the other is the Smetana at Municipal House).
Unfortunately, not all concerts in the Dvořák Hall are open to the public, as tickets for some performances are reserved for season subscription members. But where they are, Prague Experience lists them in our concert listings.
'Dvořák's Prague Festival', held annually in September, is a series of concerts that is open to the general public, as are a number of one-off concerts by the Czech Philharmonic and other orchestras.
In contrast, all classical concerts staged in the Suk Hall at the Rudolfinum are open to the general public. And it is a highly impressive venue in its own right.
Historically, the Rudolfinum played an important role in the development of the newly formed state of Czechoslovakia; the parliament, for example, was sited here between the two world wars.
Those attending a concert may wish to visit the beautiful Café Rudolfinum beforehand, which is a comfortable place to enjoy a pre-concert glass of wine or beer.
