The Rudolfinum Concert Hall is the second most significant Neo-Renaissance structure in Prague after the National Theatre
. It is situated by the Vltava River
in the Old Town
The Rudolfinum was built between 1876-1884. In the early 20th century it played an important role in the development of Czechoslovakia, with the seat of the state parliament sited here between the two world wars.
Today, the Dvořák Hall within the Rudolfinum, the main hall in the building, is one of the two largest concert halls in Prague (the other is the Smetana Hall at Municipal House).
The Rudolfinum is home to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, who perform classical concerts periodically in the Dvořák Hall.
The grandeur of the building make the Rudolfinum an impressive concert venue.
Unfortunately for visitors to Prague, most performances at the Rudolfinum are not open to them. Tickets are sold to subscription members, mainly Czech people, who need to buy tickets for a series of concerts throughout the season.
However, where tickets are available for individual performances, we add them to our concert listings. One example of this is 'Dvorak's Prague Festival' which is held annually in September, and for which tickets go on sale in April.
