In Rudolfinum, the most prominent concerts take place.
The majestic Neo-Renaissance building of Rudolfinum was erected between 1876 -1884. It was conceived as a multi-purpose cultural center with concert and exhibition rooms. The building was taken under the patronage of the heir of the Habsburg throne, the Archduke Rudolph after whom the building was named. Over the years, Rudolfinum has served many purposes: i.e. between 1919 and 1941 Rudolfinum functioned 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 Philharmonic.
Two concert halls stage the most prominent classical music concerts such as the Prague Spring Festival. The main Dvorak Hall is considered as 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.
The intimate Suk Hall hosts chamber classical concerts, such as string quartets or piano recitals. Festive atmosphere and great concerts held in Rudolfinum will not let you forget this exceptional space.
