Statue of Anton Dvorak, 1841-1904, Czech composer, in front of the National Theatre, The Rudolfinum, built 1876-1884 in neo-Renaissance style by architects Josef Zitek and Josef Schulze on Jan Palach Square in Prague, Czech Republic. Originally intended as a multipurpose cultural building, the Rudolfinum was inagurated on February 7, 1885. In 1919 it was converted to the House of Commons of the Czechoslovak Republic. Concert activity was restored to the Rudolfinum during the German occupation, and fully after 1992 with a general reconstruction by architect Karel Prager, when it became home to the Czech Philharmonic and the Rudolfinum Gallery. The historic centre of Prague was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. Picture by Manuel Cohen
