Rudolfinum

Admire art exhibitions and watch classical music performances at this neo-Renaissance concert hall, which is the home of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Rudolfinum is one of Prague’s finest concert halls and a magnet for lovers of art, architecture and classical music. Enjoy recitals of work from the repertoires of great composers such as Antonín Dvořák and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Marvel at the venue’s opulent decorations and browse exhibits of contemporary fine art.

Inaugurated in 1885, the Rudolfinum has an interesting history. Originally used as a concert hall and cultural center, during the early 20th century it became the seat of the Czechoslovak Parliament. During World War II it functioned as a German-occupied administrative building. In 1946, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra returned after a long absence. Appreciate the important center for the arts that it has become.

The Rudolfinum has a majestic neo-Renaissance design created by the famed Czech architects Josef Schulz and Josef Zítek. Note the use of Ionic columns and balustrades to decorate the façade. Look up to see statues of world-renowned musicians. Step inside to discover a series of ceremonial halls and gallery rooms decorated with period furniture.

Be sure to watch a concert performance in the Dvořák Hall and Suk Hall. Listen to presentations of Dvořák, Mozart, Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner, among others, by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Sit back, relax and appreciate the remarkable talents of a 118-member ensemble. Joining the orchestra are guest conductors and opera singers.

Come to the Rudolfinum Gallery to see thought-provoking expositions of contemporary art. They range from painting to photography and sculpture displays. Previously featured artists include German photographer Barbara Probst and Russian conceptualist Viktor Pivovarov.

Located at the northwestern edge of Prague’s Old Town, the Rudolfinum is just a short walk or tram ride from major city attractions. In an adjacent neo-Renaissance building is the Museum of Decorative Arts. Walk to the Charles Bridge and Old Town Square in about 5 minutes.

Concerts at the venue take place throughout the year while the Rudolfinum Gallery is open from Tuesday to Sunday. Find an event schedule, ticket prices and museum admission on the Rudolfinum official website.
