World's deepest swimming pool
The world’s deepest swimming pool is set to open in Europe this autumn – with swimmers able to descend a staggering 45 metres.
The ‘DeepSpot’ pool in Mszczonow, Poland, about 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Warsaw, has a water volume equivalent of 27 normal pools, and its record-breaking depth is half the length of Big Ben.
According to local media, the pool will be 45 metres (148 feet) deep, which means it will be five meters (16 feet) deeper than the present record holder in the northern Italian town of Montegrotto Terme.
