I will be traveling in early October to Raciborz for a Wrestling tournament with team USA. We have transportation from Katowice to Raciborz but I want to stay an extra day without the team to see Auschwitz and some other sites.
My questions are:
1) We are staying at Hotel Ragos or Unia. Are these decent hotels?
2) It will be over Yom Kippur and I would like to find a synagogue in Racobirz. Are there any open to the public?
3) How can I get from Raciborz to Auschwitz? Should I go back to katowice and rent a car or take a driver? Is it a far distance between Raciborz and Auschwitz?
Is this general area safe? Is there any sort of night life in katowice on a Monday night? Would I have more fun in Krakow? I have to fly home from Katowice on Tuesday afternoon and Monday will be my only free day.
Thank you so much for you answers.
