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 Dvořįk 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 of the concerts held in the Dvořįk Hall are not open to tourists; tickets are sold to subscription members only, mainly Czech people, who sign up for a series of concerts throughout the season.
Where concerts are open to visitors, they will appear in the Prague Experience concert listings, for example the annual 'Dvořįk's Prague Festival' held in September (tickets go on sale in April) and occasional one off concerts.
The good news for music lovers is that the other concert hall at the Rudolfinum, the Suk Hall, is also an impressive venue for classical concerts, and performances are open to everyone.
