This amazing Art Nouveau building is a lovely place to go and see great concerts, listen jazz, classical or modern music, and it also offers free concerts on a regular basis, what is more, the guided tours end with a mini-concert from one of the students.

The large concert hall of this prestigious conservatory is very beautiful and is worth the price of admission on its own. Musicians praise both the excellent atmosphere and the acoustics of the Music Academy.
