The area
Address
Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

In Prague, the main Concert House is called the Rudolfinum and inside is the famous and quite ornate Dvořák Hall.
It was completed in 1896 and has hosted many of the prodigious concerts from around the world. I was fortunate to attend eight concerts in the Rudolfinum during this year’s celebrated: “Prague Spring Music Festival” between May 12th and June 4th, 2024.
The Dvořák Hall has extraordinarily high ceilings which give the hall outstanding acoustics. It has a magnificent chandelier in the center and the stage is dominated by an enormous organ.
All the above add up to an exceptional evening of great music.
I do look forward in returning to Prague for next year’s music festival.

Actually it was the first building in Prague center we saw, when we got out of the metro. It is an Interesting building and a good subject for photos. In front there is a big square for walks. We couldn't go inside, as we didn't have event tickets and there was no guided tour for visiting without an event that time.

Rudolfinum is a building with a lot of history that classic music lovers will truly appreciate. The Czech Philharmonic performs in the largest hall - Dvorak Hall. So, if you want to hear the Philharmonic make sure you buy the tickets for the Dvorak Hall.
However if your time is limited and you want to go inside this beautiful place and take in a shorter concert you will not be disappointed if you know from the start what you are buying. To hear the Philharmonic will cost you more and may take more planning ahead then just buying a ticket on the street.
Last November the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra performed Dvorak's New World Symphony to a sold out audience in New York City's Carnegie Hall. ( just a bit of trivia for the classic music lovers.)

If you are a classical music lover, you may want to reserve concert tickets in this majestic building. There are several concert halls within, the largest is the Dvorak Hall. It is the seat of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.

The building is one of the architecturally most remarkable buildings in Prague. It also houses Rudolfinum Art Gallery and a Cafe.

You can take a virtual tour of the building and also book a tour to walk through the building. In good weather even go to the open viewing area on the roof. Very nice, indeed!

My husband and I have been in Rudolfinum many times, it is always a festive, elegant and enjoyable evening. The Czechs love music and they often outnumber the tourists in attendance.

Rudolfinum and the National Theater were designed by the same architect Josef Zitek.
If you are coming to Prague for a cultural experience, make Rudolfinum experience part of your visit. Be it a concert or a just a tour of the premises.
I highly recommend it :)

The concert taking place called The best selection of classic concert is a nice thing for tourists, but not worth the money to locals. The concert is not located in the main venue but in one of the smaller rooms. The chairs are not suitable for concerts, the tourists behave sometimes not appropriately (I'm not used to taking videos at classical concerts). The ensemble consists only from about 5 people which is not enough for a good performance of the classical pieces and it is only one hour long. If you wan't to hear real music, you will need to buy tickets for czech philharmonic orchestra or National theatre.

I had one of the most incedible experiences of my life here - an Easter performance of Dvorak's Stabat Mater with the Czech national choir and the Czech national philharmonic with guest soloists from around the globe. The performance was so magnificant, the (mostly local) attendees gave 15 minutes of standing ovations. The love the locals had for their performers was beautiful to behold. Traveling solo, I felt very included in their experience. The elegance of the buidling only added to the magesty of the evening.

I attended a performance of Jakub Jan Ryba's "Czech Christmas Mass" at the Rudolfinum. It is an excellent hall with very good acoustics. It is also quite elegant and convenient. Most events presented there are to season subscriber, but if a musical event to your taste is available to the general public, do not miss the opportunity to experience it in these surroundings.

My wife and I went to hear the Philharmonic Orchestra at the Rudolfinum and thoroughly enjoyed it. We bought the cheap seats and were seated directly behind the orchestra, which was great, apart from being in the direct line of sight of the rest of the audience. Make sure that you dress up to go here! Many of the locals (and even other tourists) were wearing suits, evening dresses, etc. If it wasn't for my wife I would have shown up severely under-dressed and thoroughly out of place. Smart casual dress passes (loafers, dress slacks, button down), but better to err on the side of formality and throw on a suit (or at least a suit jacket).

Whether you opt for a concert or visit an art gallery in this historic building you should be in for treat. We love to return and enjoy a festive evening filled with classical music.

As with everything else, plan ahead and know exactly what performance you are buying.
There is more than one concert hall in this building, so it is best to know beforehand what you are paying for to avoid disappointment.
If you want to hear Philharmonic orchestra, make sure you get the right ticket.
Prague has several symphony orchestras that perform in Rudolfinum....

For classical music lovers, spending an evening in Rudolfinum is a "must do" Prague experience, as is Carnegie Hall for New Yorkers and the city's visitors.
The architecture, history and ambience of Rudolfinum is in itself worth your time to visit.
Make the time for it . Have dinner in one of the fine restaurants in the area and enjoy an unforgettable and festive evening of fun - it is great at any time of the year ...

We heard a Christmas Concert by the wonderful Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Dvorak Hall is beautiful and has great acoustics for a building that once housed the Czeckoslovak Parliment.
