Time Out says

A late 19th-century, Neo-Renaissance symphony hall that also houses a lesser-known art gallery and cafe

This historic building is designed to be admired from all sides. Sculptures of renowned composers stand guard over the columned façade out front (see their website for a legend surrounding the near removal of one). The rounded walls of Dvořák Hall provide the perfect acoustics for the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. The smaller Suk Hall hosts more intimate concerts, private events, and occasional film screenings under a sparkling chandelier. On the bottom floor, contemporary artists decorate the walls of the free-to-enter Galerie Rudolfinum alongside a family-friendly, interactive Artpark. Top off your exploration of the building with a light snack and espresso in the spacious Café Rudolfinum, also on the lower level.

Time Out tip: Classical music fans should plan a visit around the Prague Spring Festival (usually May-June) for a full calendar of international performances.
