Help us open the Rudolfinum Terrace for public access

A project is underway to renew a stunning space at the Rudolfinum, one of the Czech Republic’s most beloved buildings. Watch a brief introductory video for the project:

Terrace for All. And for the Future

The Rudolfinum roof terrace has enormous potential for public use and events, and provides one of the most picturesque views of Prague available anywhere in the city. But the current condition of the terrace means this potential has not yet been realised.

We aim to:

  • Open up the terrace for full public access
  • Install necessary services to facilitate the use of the terrace for events
  • Enhance the experience for visitors and concertgoers at the Rudolfinum
  • Make a positive impact on the future of one of the Czech Republic’s most important national cultural landmarks.


Join the Terrace Team

Unparalleled views of the Vltava, Prague Castle and the Old Town, framed by sixteen statues of history’s most significant composers, make it a truly special place to be.

Our project aims to make a similar experience possible for all, and to do this, we need your help. With the opportunity to become a custodian of one of the sixteen statues by making a major donation, you have a unique chance to write your name into the history of the Rudolfinum and of the Czech Philharmonic. We also hope you will also consider sharing our vision for the terrace with whomever you think may be interested in becoming involved in the project.

The Terrace Project Team

The Terrace Project is a joint effort by the Czech Philharmonic and its partners. Crucial roles are being played by Arcona Capital (the project initiator, manager and lead sponsor) and Finep CZ, both proud partners of the Czech Philharmonic since 2018. The project also benefits from the involvement of the Civic Forum Foundation and Best Communications teams.

Any other interested parties are invited to get in touch with the project team to discuss how they can help and participate!
