Festival divadel Moravy a Slezska
The festival Těšinské divadlo was founded in 1945. Těšinské divadlo is currently the only Czech professional theater, which consists of two troupes, which are using two different languages: Czecha and Polish. This is caused by a natural need of the region of Śl sk Cieszyński and also by the fact that the city of Cieszyn is situated on the border between the Czech Republic and Poland. The proximity of the border with Slovakia (20 km) makes Cieszyn particularly attractive in connection to the planned European integration.
