Poland to open world’s deepest swimming pool

The world’s deepest swimming pool will open in Poland this autumn.

At 45m deep, the Deepspot diving pool will be the ideal place for beginner and professional divers alike to practise their skills.

It will be filled with 8,000 cubic metres of water – the equivalent of 27 Olympic-size swimming pools.

Deepspot will take the deepest swimming pool title from reigning champ Y-40 Deep Joy in Montegrotto Terme, Italy, which has a depth of 42m.

Based in Msxczonow, a town 40km southwest of Poland’s capital city, Warsaw, the pool is still under construction.

Non-swimmers can also enjoy the attraction, according to the website: an “underwater tunnel for spectators”, conference, training and hotel rooms with views of the pool will all be part of the finished product.

However, Deepspot will only hold the deepest pool title for about six months after opening. Blue Abyss, a 50m-deep pool, is set to open in the UK in 2020. It’s currently being built in Colchester.
