Austrian Crown Prince Rudolf lent his name to this neo-Renaissance concert space and exhibition gallery built in 1884; it's only been open to the public since 1992. The large concert hall, named for Antonín Dvořák, who conducted here, hosts concerts by the Czech Philharmonic. The smaller Josef Suk Hall, on the opposite side of the building, is used for chamber concerts. Rival theaters may have richer interiors, but the acoustics here are excellent.

We saw one of the evening concerts and it was a fantastic medley of classical works on string instruments. The musical quality was top-notch. The only drawback is we didn't realize it was in the small Suk Hall until we arrived, so we were expecting a grand theater and it sort of looked like a middle school band room. When the tickets for a 1.5 hour concert start at 30 Euros, you expect something a bit fancier. Even so, it was a great experience.
