The Mazurian Lake District, which Poles refer to colorfully as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, has made it into the finals of a competition organized by the Swiss-based New7Wonders foundation. The northeastern Polish lake district is competing in the Landscape and Ice Formation category. Internet users around the world chose 77 semi-finalists in an online poll, after which New7Wonders judges selected 28 locations which until 2011 will compete to become one of "new seven wonders of nature." This is a golden promotional opportunity for Mazuria, a top vacation destination for crowds of Poles who come here to sail or relax in beautiful surroundings. The number of foreign visitors to Mazuria may now increase significantly, and the local authorities are more than happy.

When Barack Obama became president of the world's most powerful country, Central and Eastern Europe embraced him amid great expectations. Today, however, Obama's policies are starting to cause concern among politicians in the region. A group of former presidents, prime ministers, ministers and diplomats have written an unprecedented letter to Obama in which they call on Washington to take a greater interest in their countries and make sure the revival of Moscow's imperial aspirations is not underestimated. The letter calls on America to continue with its National Missile Defense (NMD) system, parts of which were supposed to be located in Poland and the Czech Republic. The signatories of the letter consider NMD a test of America's credibility in the eyes of its allies.

Former Polish prime minister Jerzy Buzek has made history after he was elected the first president of the European Parliament from a country which entered the European Union after May 2004. The parliamentary vote on Buzek was merely a formality after he was backed by the five largest political groups in the European Parliament, including the one he is a member of, the Christian-Democrat European People's Party. Several other Polish Euro deputies have taken important posts as chairs and deputy chairs of parliamentary committees.

The lower house of parliament has approved a government amendment to this year's budget that increases the budget deficit by zl.9 billion to zl.27.2 billion. But according to Finance Minister Jacek Rostowski, Poland is in good shape, dealing with the crisis better than the vast majority of European countries.
