German  Ratibor 

      city, southwestern Śląskie województwo (province), south-central Poland, on the upper Oder River.

      According to tradition, Racibórz was founded by a Slavic tribal ruler, Prince Racibor, in the 9th century and was united with Poland in the 10th. It was granted municipal rights in the 13th century and became the seat of a trade fair and handicrafts industry. It passed to the Habsburgs in the 16th century and to Prussia in 1742 but was returned to Poland after World War II, in which it was badly damaged. A regional museum is located there.
