The Rudolfinum & the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra
The Rudolfinum is a multi-purpose cultural complex, which houses a gorgeous concert hall, home to the renowned Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, a grand turn of the last century café and a spacious art gallery that displays temporary international contemporary art exhibitions. The cultural complex features four rooms for music performances including Dvořák Hall, which is known for its perfect acoustics, Suk hall and the Kubelík Hall. J. Schulz, who also designed the National Theater in Prague, which is a beautiful example of Historicist architecture in central Europe, designed this neo Renaissance building. The location of the Rudolfinum complex is an important one as it creates a cultural center in the heart of Prague alongside the Faculty of Philosophy, the Academy of Decorative Arts and the Museum of Decorative Arts. The Czech Philharmonic Orchestra’s first concert took place in the gorgeous Rudolfinum on January 4th, 1896 and was conducted by no other than Antonín Dvořák. The quality and passion for music continues to this day and the orchestra is considered to be among the top Philharmonic Orchestras in the world. The Czech Philharmonic Orchestra’s concert schedule is available online.
