I make almost weekly attendances to many of the spectacular classical and other themed concerts here. Ticket prices are very affordable, compared to Europe and Canada.

Perfect located close to Miadan Square, National Philharmonic offers not just music to enjoy. The Building is a brilliant star among old concert houses in the world. We enjoyed a fantastic concert celebrating Carl Nielsen's 150th anniversary. Highly recommendable.

A visit to the National Philharmonic house of Ukraine is a treat to melomaniacs like myself. At a petty price you can enjoy variety of decent, and even world-class performance of chamber and symphonic music, concert adoption of operas, solos as well as festivals and...More

At an incredible £7 we had a very good evening of quality music with a good range of both solo performance and orchestral works, quite a nice hall but the interval was a bit rushed
