I found a Job in Katowice (9.000 - 9.500 PLN); tax, vacation, health care, expats

So I have been offered a job in Katowice, working as a specialist in IT for an international bank.
The salary will be 9.000 to 9.500 PLN a month. It includes some benefits like Medicare (can be extended), a bonus you could get based on your achievement (1x your monthly wage), annual review and increases in salary, some smaller incentives etc ..

From what I read this seems to be a good deal. . Is it correct that I'll end up with around 65% of this. Are there any hidden costs to be taken into account, or is it safe to assume this 65% ratio ?

How does it work if you take vacation. In my originating country you take vacation, these days are fully payed and you still get extra vacation money once a year. Does it work similar here?

Also this Medicare, it offers some private health care from what I understood, but if would it be advisable to upgrade this to a higher level?

Is there an expat community in Katowice?
And does anyone know a place that offers decent Polish language lessons in the Katowice area, going to try and get my work to pay for this, and if that fails take them privately :)

Cheers,

Bruno

Merged: Is 6000 PLN net per month for 2 in Katowice enough?

Hi Guys. I have an offer for that money (9k gross), I'm trying to up it to 11k gross but I still in negotiation.

I've read many post here but are from ~2012. I don't know how much was the inflation the last 4 years.
