The VIII International Jazz Festival in Ruins starts on August 3, 2012. Our "train to jazz" takes listeners to 8 concerts, music workshops and an exhibition of graphics by students and lecturers of the Department of Graphic Design of the University of Silesia in Cieszyn. All with a very international cast. We will host artists from Denmark, Italy, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, and of course Poland. A place, as always magical, i.e. the Ruins of the Victoria Theater in Gliwice.
