I am looking for a database that would provide classification of various types of RNA - information about its structure, function, etc.

Rfam is a database about RNA families, similar to Pfam (wich is for proteins). I think it's what you're looking for.

You could also enjoy miRbase, a database for micro RNAs: There are tRNA databases, too, like this one: And this tool for predict RNA secondary structure (However, this kind of tools aren't as good as they proteinic counterpart):
