DeepSpot Poland will be the world’s deepest swimming pool
Get ready to dive into the world’s deepest swimming pool later this year.
Construction on DeepSpot Poland is coming to an end keeping the project on track for its opening date this autumn.
When complete, the pool, which is located 50kms from Warsaw, will have a depth of 45 metres, making it the deepest swimming pool in the world.
The structure has been built using over 1,100 tons of steel and is designed to hold 8,000 cubic metres of water, equivalent to around 50,000 filled bath tubs.
In the company’s last construction update on Facebook, it stated that there were less than seven metres to be built to the edge of the shallow section of the pool.
Open to amateurs and professionals alike, the pool will also be used as a scuba site, with landing platforms at various depths. A transparent underwater viewing tunnel is also part of the final design.
The pool will be in watery company when it opens its doors thanks to its location in the small town of Mszczonów which is already known for its hot springs water park.
DeepSpot Poland may take the record for the world’s deepest swimming pool this year, but it may be a short-lived title. A company in the UK called Blue Abyss has recently announced plans to build an even deeper swimming pool in Liverpool. If planning is approved, the new pool would plunge down to 50 metres, taking the title from the Polish effort.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
