Poland may be one of the most unlikely destinations for dive enthusiasts, but that’s about to change. The world’s deepest indoor pool is set to open in Poland this fall and will allow swimmers to dive 45 meters below the surface.
Created as a training site for divers, the Deepspot diving pool will hold 8,000 cubic meters of water when completed – that’s 27 times more water than standard 25-meter pools. How deep will it be?
At a depth of 45 meters, the super-sized pool will be as deep as a 15-storey building. And it will be accessible to everyone, not just scuba divers.
For a more comfortable dive experience that will also allow free divers to forego wetsuits and water temperature will be warmer than standard pool temperatures.
Water will also be filtered 15 times a day to keep the pool transparent and clean for both divers and outside spectators. By comparison, traditional pools are filtered an average of three times a day, Deepspot said.
Interestingly, it will house a colossal transparent, underwater tunnel which took around 1,100 tons of steel to build. Conference, training, and hotel rooms will also have a view of the underground pool.
The pool opens this autumn in Mszczonow about an hour’s drive outside Warsaw, by the same group that operates the popular indoor skydiving attraction, Flyspot.
