Rudolfinum is the most famous concert building in Prague and the seat of the Czech Philharmony.
The elegant Neo-Renaissance building of Rudolfinum was built in 1881. It was conceived as a multipurpose cultural center with concert and exhibition halls. The building was taken under the patronage of the heir of the Habsburg throne, the archduke Rudolph after whom the building was named.
Between 1919 and 1941 Rudolfinum served temporarily as an assembly hall of Czech Parliament.
Since then it has functioned as a concert hall, exhibition space, and a seat of the Czech Philharmony Orchestra.
Classical music concerts in Prague´s Rudolfinum are truly an unforgettable experience.
Two concert halls stage the most prominent classical music concerts such as the Prague Spring Festival. The main Dvorak Hall is considered one of the most beautiful concert halls in Prague with excellent acoustics particularly suitable for symphonic and oratorial, as well as chamber music. There is also a magnificent organ in the Dvorak Hall.
