I booked a classical concert few hours before it started. The price was ok for a classical concert and it was very good! Musicians are talented and the chosen pieces were well picked: essentials, Praha compositors and funny unknown pieces. However, I would have likes a more elegant room. Going to this concert hall, I was expecting a big and luscious room, but it was a very normal room with chairs in a row. Just don't pay the expensive seats… take the cheapest!

Yes, another gorgeous building in Prague, and once you should visit. I was fortunate enough to be in Prague while the Jake & Dinos Chapman exhibit was on. The rooms are so spacious (especially in low tourist season, which is when I visited). The acoustics for live music are excellent. The cafe is lovely. The coffee is divine.

The building was designed by architect Josef Zítek and his student Josef Schulz, and was opened 8 February 1885. It is named in honour of Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria, who presided over the opening. The Rudolfinum's Dvořák Hall is one of the oldest concert halls in Europe and is noted for its excellent acoustics.

This imponent and amazing building houses one of the most important music auditoriums of Prague, venue for the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Galerie Rudolfinum for temporary art exhibitions.

I visited the Galerie Rudolfinum for an excellent exhibition by the Chapman Brothers, ending in the beginning of january. The price was about 120 czk for students, which is nothing for a world-class exhibition. I also recommend taking a look at the library, where I found a catalogue of an old exhibition by La Chapelle. They have about four exhibitions per year, and for what I saw they are definitely worth a visit.
