The building is impressive from the exterior, and even more glorious inside. Is really a wonderful place for music lovers , as it combines good sound quality in an elegant building with local taste.

I saw last the RA when I had to survey this place vs. an official reception supposed to be host here.the place is great and the best for any tourist would be to go a concert organized in it.

This is a lovely concert hall and not very big as well. So if you are lucky and catch a performance that you might like you will see definitely from all the seats. Also the hall has great sound.

If you can catch a performance here it will be memorable. It's the home of the world reknown orchestra. The acoustics are stunning and the theater is gorgeous. If not a tour is still something to do.

Very fine place for concerts. Very comfortable seats, and a stunning place to sit for an hour or so if you get to a concert.

We saw this pop up in TripAdvisor's picks and kept it in the back of our minds as we walked through Old Town. We came upon it almost by accident mid-day, on a week day. The front doors were locked and we grabbed lunch nearby....More

Just go round the side to the ticket office. You can possibly do it online too, but we found it easier to do it in person.
