Date of the event: 21-25 August 2019, location: Maty-ér, Szeged. Major improvement to facilities mean that athletes and visitors can enjoy the benefits of a state-of-the-art course at the world championships.
Among other developments, a bridge and cycle path is being built, and the course infrastructure and grandstand are being renovated.
On the special stamp and the first day cover the graphic artist depicted moments from the competition. In the special postmark a graphic composition formed by the kayak and canoe paddles supplements the official logo of the world championships.
