THoD Newsdesk, Poland: DeepSpot, located in the town of Mszczonow, near Warsaw, Poland, has become the world’s deepest swimming pool with a depth of 150 ft and it is now open for visitors. This dive pool contains 8000 cubic metres of water, which is 20 times more than the amount in an ordinary 25-m pool. This pool, unlike regular diving pools, will accommodate people despite COVID-19 restrictions, as it will be used as a training centre offering courses for divers as well. As per reports, there is also an underwater hotel with rooms that will allow guests to watch divers at a depth of 5m.
DeepSpot Director, Michal Braszczynski, stated that the pool will also be used by the fire brigade and the army. He added that there will be many scenarios for training and that they will be testing different equipment.
Developed by Aerotunnel, this project features a series of underwater cave environments with a ‘blue hole’ leading down to its deepest basin. Divers are welcome to explore other environments including a small shipwreck and simulated Mayan ruins. There’s also an underwater tunnel for spectators along with a number of onsite hotel rooms with a “view” at a depth of over 16 feet, which will be available from December 14. The construction cost of this establishment is marked at $10.6 million and it took over 2 years for this venture to be completed.
The water in this exclusive pool is warmer than the regular swimming pools, so divers don’t have to wear wet suits while plunging into it. As there are a variety of depths, divers will be able to train themselves, according to their comfort. Alongside, students will be able to learn to dive here, with instructors at their disposal while freedivers can experiment in the unique conditions.
As yet, citizens of the USA are restricted from travelling to Poland, according to the US Embassy in Warsaw but Poland is open to citizens from EU countries, as well as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, amidst others.
