A Place That Matters to Us
Every part of Rudolfinum tells a story. Whether it is the sculptures on the balustrade, the ornaments in the interior decoration or the original welded steel structure in the attic. We ensure that each tells a story. And every voice sounds the same as it ever did.
Preserve and Develop
The Czech Philharmonic is not only a musical institution, but since 1989 has also been the administrator of the entire building. It strives to take the best possible care of its headquarters and as such has a whole department dedicated to it: Rudolfinum Administration and Investments.
National Cultural Monument Care
Every modification and reparation, even the smallest one, must be carefully considered and sensitively carried out. In collaboration with the National Heritage Institute, restorers and other experts, we have succeeded in preserving the creative and artistic legacy of our ancestors and developing the building to meet contemporary needs.
For Art and Life in the 21st Century
Everyone should feel comfortable and welcome at Rudolfinum. Visitors, performers and staff. The building should support the performance and presentation of music and visual art as much as possible and enhance your experience of it.
In recent years, for example, the acoustics and comfort in the Suk Hall have been significantly improved. A television studio has been set up, which enables the Czech Philharmonic to broadcast and record concerts in 4K resolution. The facilities for the orchestra's staff and members are steadily being renovated. The modernization of the air-conditioning systems has significantly contributed to the energy savings of the entire building.
Homeowners will confirm: housework never stops. Now imagine a house with a total area of 5,212 m², with almost 100 rooms and daily operations pushing the limits of its capacity.
Kilometers of corridors and tens of kilometers of wiring and cables. Test rooms, cloakrooms, tuning rooms, offices, warehouses, machine rooms, attic. Just the sockets, bulbs, handles, locks and hinges alone. So many windows and shutters. Such areas to clean...
Almost every day, we welcome over 1000+ guests who come to see a concert, an exhibition, just sit in the café or experience one of our educational programs. There are also over 70 permanent staff members and over 120 orchestra members.
Regular and responsible maintenance is therefore a crucial part of the building's care. As was observed: long-term neglect and the constant overstretching of the building's capacities led to the necessity of Rudolfinum’s general reconstruction at the end of the 20th century.
Soon, the view of the Vltava river, the Old Town and Prague Castle will be enjoyed by not only the statues. Everyone who climbs to the roof of the Temple of Art will be treated to it.
Adoption of Statues of Composers
Adopt one of the 16 statues of composers on the building balustrade. You will be contributing to a worthy cause whilst making a positive mark on the history of Rudolfinum and the Czech Philharmonic.
