The name is Deepspot. It’s 45.4-metres-deep pool, filled with 8,000 cubic meters of water. The world’s deepest swimming pool is located in the Polish town of Mszczonow, not far from Warsaw.
One of the particularities of the Deepspot complex is that, unlike other pools, it can host swimmers during the pandemic. The complex is considered a training center for divers. Visitors will be able to see reproductions of underwater caves and Mayan ruins. A small shipwreck completes the marine landscape. Among other plans, the swimming pool will be used by firefighters and the army for training purposes.
This is not a substitute for the sea with its coral reefs but it’s a good place to train,” said Przemyslaw Kacprzak, a 39-year-old scuba instructor. Kacprzak was one of the few visitors attending the swimming pool’s inauguration.
It took nearly two years to finish the Deepspot complex, with cost of 40 million zlotys (€8.9 million). It is estimated that close to 5,000 cubic meters of concrete were used.
There is a risk that Deepspot might loose its accolades as the deepest swimming pool in the world given that Abyss, a 50-meter-deep swimming pool, is scheduled to open in Merseyside, UK, in 2021.
