Determining of Kraków Opera House's basic acoustics parameters by using numerical simulations is presented in the paper. Parameters have been obtained by using numerical simulation methods. Sound sources have been created by means of FEA, however acoustic field distributions have been analysed by geometrical methods. Apart from the room parameters definition, it is necessary to determine sound source parameters like acoustic power level and directivity pattern. In the simplest case, the sound source can be assumed as omni directional point source. However it does not reflect most real live sources precisely. When the literature and databases do not contain any information about the sound source directivity pattern, it can be obtained numerically using FEA. First, the sound source model is created, and then results from its spherical boundary are used to define the source in a program based on geometrical methods. Here have been analysed several distributions of acoustic parameters like: Direct Energy, Sound Pressure Level (SPL), Clarity index (C80) etc. The results indicate that influence of sound source directivity on acoustics parameters changes is essential.
