  Rudolfinum.

Two of the most important neo-renaissance buildings in Prague are the National Theatre and the Rudolfinum (built 1876-1884) named after Prince Rudolf of Habsburg (the one who killed himself at Mayerling). Both those buildings were designed by Josef Z?tek and Josef Schulz. The Rudolfinum was designated for concerts and art exhibitions, but between the wars it was used by the parliament. Rudolfinum is now the home of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. There are two halls with excellent acoustics. The larger one (the Dvorak Hall) is used for major recitals. The smaller one (the Suk Hall) is used for soloists or chamber music. An evening at the Rudolfinum is well spent.
