Náměstí Republiky 5, Praha 1
Built as a tribute to Bedřich Smetana - world known Czech composer. Representative Smetana Hall was the site of the independent Czechoslovak Republic declaration in 1918. Nowadays it serves predominantly as a concert hall. Beautiful Art Nouveau decorations – paintings with Slavic motifs, decorative stained glass ceiling, gilded lamps, beautiful organ – all this creates an unusually harmonic whole, which is a worthy area for implementation of the greatest treasures of Czech and world classical music.
The Municipal House in Prague was built at the place of the former Royal Court in 1912 to celebrate the Czech nation. It is a representative building which for its splendour and beautiful decorations is one of the jewels of Prague architecture. Although the building is usually described as an "Art Nouveau" edifice it is more of a blend of neo-Baroque, neo-Renaissance, western and oriental influences and Czech Art Nouveau style.
Today, the Municipal House in Prague offers a wide range of multifunctional premises in which all sorts of events are held (exhibitions, conferences, fashion shows, charity events, companies' shows, etc.). There is also a great and highly recommendable French restaurant, Municipal House Café and American bar.
Municipal House is, above all, a great venue for Prague classical music concerts and one of the prime venues of the world-famous Prague Spring Festival.
Do not miss your chance to visit great classical music concert in one of the nicest concert venues in Prague!
Why was it so empty?
The concert hall was beautiful and the acoustics were perfect. Our seats were on the center aisle near the back and we could even hear the vocalist breathe. I highly recommend any concert in this hall.
Sedadla i akustika byla dobra.
Salle magnifique qui aurait gagné à être éclairée davantage
Need to update entrance method - still doing things by hand instead of scanning tickets electronically.
The venue is good, the hall is big and have nice details. The program is only available to buy in Czech, it would be nice also to have a small review in English somewhere also. But it’s okay.
Large, gorgeous hall, well maintained, wonderful acoustics. Seating capacity was perfect, not too large.
Smetana Hall is amazing in every way - the architecture, the art, the organ, the acoustics.
An historic building, but also spacious and comfortable. The setting was perfect for the music. Staff were polite and helpful.
Magnifique salle. Tant sur le plan décoratif que sur le plan phonique. Assise confortable.
great setting, good acoustics
The venue itself is visually stunning and acoustically excellent. It's worth arriving early just to take it all in, and it's beautifully maintained.
Absolutely magnificent concert hall
The venue itself was beautiful but the voices were difficult to hear clearly. It seemed that the venue was not ideal acoustically for the performance.
Sadly, our trip was cancelled due to low water in the river and had to cancel. We were very please with the ticket office and how they helped us
Nous regrettons d'avoir été assis derrière trois personnes qui ont passé leur temps à filmer le concert avec leur téléphone portable. La lumière de leur écran et leusr gestes nous ont par moment agacés et détournés du magnifique concert. Au prix de notre billet nous aurions aimé mieux profiter.
Beautiful Hall, Gorgeous building, wonderful acoustics, even an elegant lift.
La salle est très grande et très belle.
Beautiful art nouveau setting
The Smetana Hall is exquisitely beautiful. I do not understand why only very few people attend the concerts where not only the music and acoustics are great but you can also spend the hour enjoying the architectural features, too.
it will be much better if the sitting plan was also provided during booking.
Beautiful venue with great acoustics! It was a pleasure.
Loved the Municipal House. The Smetana Hall is a glorious backdrop and the acoustics were excellent.
Sound in the middle of hall was good
The venue was BEAUTIFUL and I could hear and see the performers perfectly from where we were seated.
The resonance of the the instrument is quite good.
A very historic and beautiful venue.
Beautiful historic venue. A perfect location for the wonderful musical program.
The seats aren't terribly comfortable but the acoustics are excellent
A very beautiful concert hall with great accoustics
Municipal House and Smetana Hall are beautiful. It was easy to find my seat and the staff were really helpful and friendly.
We had balconey seats. Upon ordering, the site said that there were no assigned seating, but hen we arrived, they had our order and assigned us very good seats.
My only concern was that the seats were too closely packed in from both beside and behind. I sat in front of a lady who coughed the entire concert and so found it very difficult to just immerse myself in the music being performed.
The hall was beautiful but the seats were a little hard. As mentioned above, it may have acoustic dead spos.
La sala ha un grande fascino ma un'acustica non perfetta, almeno nella prima metá della platea. Buona l'organizzazione. Personale professionale e gentile.
Très belle salle
Très beau cadre
Smetana Hall is beautiful and grand venue - a real feel of elegance from another era.
Byl jsem schopen poslouchat představení na obdivované Smetanově síni a já jsem byl schopen ochutnat nejvíce uspokojující pocit.
Určitě bych to doporučil mnoha lidem.
Beautiful venue, but seating is average. All on one level, so somerimes difficult to see well. Great acoustic
Pity about the sqeaky chairs.
Très belle salle, acoustique remarquable.
Securing tickets online was. My wife and I enjoyed a drink in the ‘oldest bar’ downstairs before attending the concert.
I’d seen pictures of the hall online but was struck by its beauty and decor throughout the evening.
The staff were all very friendly.
I hope to return one day.
Der Smetana Saal und das gesamte Gebäude ist ein hervorragender Ort für kulturelle Veranstaltungen.
Service impeccable, décors agréable, bonne température.
Magnificent place! Worth going.
Le lieu est également avec une belle sale de concert, et pour avant et après un restaurant et une brasserie qui valent le détour.
Why, while your brilliant conductor has the courage to start the concert at the correct time, do you agree to continue letting the latecomers into the room (Disrespectful!) During the first 10 minutes ??
Thea could the hall are simply amazing.
Municipal House is ideal as it is a must see on its own.
La salle est imposante, les fresques belles.
Le confort des fauteuils laisse à désirer
Très bel endroit bon acoustique dans toute la salle.
Très belle salle très bien placée.
Beautiful venue, shame about the poor comfort seats.
The seating was adequate but uncomfortable for a long concert. The setting and the acoustics were excellent.
Gorgeous. Good acoustics
Loved being in the Main hall so majestic.
See above. I did find my seat a little hard.
The hall is really excellent.
Acoustics were excellent. The seating was less plush, but the concert was not so long as to make the seating an issue.
It was odd that someone in the orchestra brought 2 bags on the stage.
Beautiful building and a nice hall for string music.
Excellent venue for a classical music performance.
