About the Rudolfinum
One of the architecturally most remarkable buildings in Prague was erected in 1876–1884. Designed by architects Josef Zítek and Josef Schulz, it was conceived as a multi-purpose cultural centre combining exhibition rooms with concert halls. This plan was carried out to perfection and Rudolfinum still fulfils its role in the 21st century.
A building with an eventful history
Having been not only a home of the arts, but also a parliamentary chamber, a gym or a canteen, the Rudolfinum has served many purposes and many masters during the more than 130 years of its history. Not all of these have been to its liking, but there has never been a dull moment.
