The Rudolfinum is a renowned music auditorium situated along the bank of Vltava River in the city of Prague in the Czech Republic. The building was the architectural masterpiece of Josef Zítek and Josef Schulz, and was named after Rudolf, the former Crown Prince of Austria. Since 1946, the auditorium has been the regular venue for the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra performances and the annual Prague Spring International Music Festival. The building is highly celebrated for its magnificent representation of the Neo-Renaissance architecture, highlighting intricately designed and grandiose exterior and interior layouts that are equally stunning as the shows it hosts.
- Visit the Galerie Rudolfinum, managed by the Czech Republic Ministry of Culture, and features a wide collection of contemporary art exhibitions that includes the works of Jürgen Klauke, František Drtikol, and Gottfried Helnwein.
- Watch a classical concert at Dvorák Hall, named after the celebrated Czech composer Antonín Dvorák, and is the biggest concert hall in Prague and the oldest one in Europe.
- Walk from the northern side of Jan Palach Square, where Rudolfinum sits, towards the western side to get great views of the Old Town's landmarks like the Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, and Petřín Hill.
Rudolfinum is accessible via Prague's Metro, an underground transport network. The nearest station to the concert hall is the Straomestska underground station, which falls under the green A line of the network. As an alternative, the city's tram service also serves this neighbourhood with the Staromestska tram station as the closest station to the concert hall. From these two stations, you only need to follow the signs that lead you to the auditorium. If you are just around the Old Town Square, stroll along Kaprova Street until you reach the end to find the Rudolfinum on the right side.
