19 February 2009
- Zakopane is ready for the start of the ISU Junior World Championships Speed Skating. It looks beautiful every where in the city. It is a holiday in Poland now and many wintersport tourists are in town. It is snowing and beside the roads you see meters of snow and the city is beautifully illuminated. The Ice Rink looks good although it is a hard work to get the snowoff the ice every day . On Friday the first competition day the temperature in the morning, when the competition starts (10.00 hr), will be minus 10 degrees Celsius. Later the day, when the sun shines, it will be around minus 5 degrees. The first photos of the village and opening ceremny in the centre of the village are published now on this website.
