The Smetana Hall is the most famous and largest concert hall of the Municipal House in Prague

Prague Municipal House and the splendid interior of its main hall, named after famous Czech composer Bedřich Smetana, will take your breath away. The best way how to explore this exquisite hall is to attend one of the great classical concerts held here. 

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
