The monumental and austere building of the former City Theatre located in Gliwice once housed one of the best institutions of its kind in the Silesian region. The Gliwice stage was established at the end of the nineteenth century, and in the interwar period it was part of the Upper Silesian Theatre of Three Cities. The building was partially burned in 1945, when the Soviet soldiers set fire to it. In the 1990s century, the theater building, which is now called “Ruins”, was revitalized, and has become a place of many cultural events.

The most magnificent is the neo-Classicist mausoleum of the Meyer family. Many members of the known Troplowitz family were on the cemetery.
