The World Classic Championships of Seniors start in Lahti on February 15th, 2001. The ski jumps will be the contest most interesting for us, along with two individual contests of jumps in the big and medium take-off. Poland will be represented, e.g., by Adam Małysz, winner of the 49th Four Take-Off Competition. All of us are fascinated with the ultimate successes of our countryman. We have not had such an excellent occasion to be proud of the achievements of Polish sportsmen for so many years. The approaching Championships in Lahti will surely give us a lot of emotions and we hope they will be a continuation of the successes of the Polish jumper.
The Polish Post, official sponsor of the Polish representation of ski jumpers, will introduce a postal stamp representing Adam Małysz into the market.

Internet was founded as a network aimed at serving research purposes, but it quickly transformed into a popular communication system used by millions of people all over the world.

The beginnings of the network's development were connected with military needs. As an answer to the launching of the first artificial satellite of Earth, Sputnik, by the Soviet Union, the Defense Department of the United States appointed a special agency called ARPA (Advanced Research Projects Agency) in 1957. Its main task included the preparation of new information techniques. ARPANET was established as a result of its works in 1969. It connected contractors from universities, the military industry, and the army. It was created to facilitate research on the distribution of information. It has been systematically growing since its very beginning. The possibility to send files was quickly added to it, along with the electronic mail and discussion groups. The network was so crowded already in 1985 that the National Science Foundation (NSF) started works on a new project of a network: NSFNET. ARPANET officially stopped its activities in 1990. NSFNET continued to grow. Poland was connected to the world-wide network one year later. New services started to appear, e.g., WWW (World-Wide-Network) so popular today.

On the day of introducing the stamps into the market, there will be sold a first day envelope (FDC) with a special date seal in the Post Office Warsaw 1.

The 20th Winter Contest Uniwersjada Zakopane 2001 will be held on February 7th-17th, 2001. The Polish Post will introduce a new stamp at the occasion. Contests called Uniwersjada are Students' Olympic Games and they are organized by the International Federation of Students' Sport (FISU), which was founded in 1949. The first Uniwersjada was organized in 1959 in Torino, Italy.

Zakopane is the biggest Polish tourist center. The location of the village Zakopane is confirmed already in 1670 in the document called Conservatia, issued by King Michal Korybut Wi¶niowiecki.

During the inter-war period, there was located a fashionable recreation and spa center, which gradually became more and more popular as a winter sports center as well. The development of the winter sports was enhanced by the construction of the roller coaster in Gubałówka and Kasprowy Wierch.

World Championships in Skiing were held there in 1938 and 1962. Zakopane, visited by a great number of tourists became known as "the winter capital" of Poland.

On the day of introducing the stamps into the market, there will be sold a first day envelope (FDC) with a special date seal in the Post Office Zakopane 1.
