The Rudolfinum is the second most significant Neo-Renaissance structure in Prague after the National Theatre
It was built between 1876 and 1884, and is set in a commanding position near the Vltava River in the Old Town.
The Rudolfinum played an important role in the development of the newly formed state of Czechoslovakia in the early 20th century; the seat of the state parliament was sited here between the two world wars.
Today, the Rudolfinum is home to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, who organise and perform classical concerts here.
The Dvořák Hall inside the Rudolfinum is one of the two largest concert halls in Prague (the other is the Smetana Hall at Municipal House). The grandeur of the building make it an impressive concert venue.
Unfortunately, many concerts held in the Dvořák Hall are effectively closed to tourists, with tickets sold only to subscription members, mainly Czech people, who sign up for a season long series of concerts.
Where concerts are open to the general public they appear in our concert listings, for example the annual 'Dvořák's Prague Festival' held in September, as well as one off concerts by the Czech Philharmonic and other orchestras.
Finally, there is a second concert hall at Rudolfinum, Suk Hall, which is also an impressive venue for classical concerts. All performances at the Suk Hall are open to the general public.
