Special Public Health Measures

Attendance at concerts this year will be subject to public health measures ordered by the Czech Ministry of Health. Please check our website before attending each concert to verify what measures are currently valid.

A Ministry of Health decree dated 24 August 2020 and effective from 1 September 2020 imposes the requirement of using protective equipment for breathing (covering the nose and mouth), such as a respirator, facemask, surgical mask, scarf or shawl at public events with a number of participants in excess of 100 at one time and held at an indoor venue.

This decree applies to all of the concerts we are presenting. We thank you in advance for respecting this requirement. Persons not wearing protective equipment for breathing will not be permitted to enter the Rudolfinum or the concert halls in the building.

Security information

Unfortunately, security has become a topic of discussion around the world, and the Dvořák Prague Festival wishes to draw attention to its security measures at concert venues and in the halls. Our primary concern is for your safety as well as the safety of the performers and our entire team.

  • Please check in the cloakroom any items that could impede other audience members in the concert hall. For security reasons, you will not be permitted to enter the concert hall with such items.
  • Large items of luggage may not be left in the cloakroom. For security reasons, you will not be permitted to enter the concert buildings with such items.
  • Bringing weapons, sharp or pointed items, or objects of any kind that are seen as dangerous or could be used as a weapon into concert halls is forbidden. This includes selfie sticks.
  • Making of audio or video recordings in the concert halls is strictly prohibited unless the presenter allows an exception.
  • Respect the rules of polite behaviour and do not disturb the musical performance. The presenter reserves the right to judge the suitability of audience members’ behaviour in the concert hall, and if the presenter’s instructions are not obeyed reserves the right to expel such persons from the hall without claim to refund of admission price.
  • We ask visitors to carry a valid form of identification to identify themselves if necessary.
  • For security reasons, we ask for your understanding concerning any spot checks of persons and their belongings.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We hope you enjoy this cultural experience.
