A 45.5-meter deep dive pool with artificial underwater caves and Mayan ruins opens this weekend near Warsaw. It is stated to be the deepest structure in the world.
The complex, called Deepspot, also has a small wreck for divers to see. This pond requires 8,000 cubic meters of water to fill, which is more than 20 times more than a traditional 25 meter pool to fill.
Unlike conventional pools, the Deepspot complex can be opened despite restrictions in Poland, as it is a training center that offers courses.
There are also plans to build a hotel on the side, where guests will be able to watch divers at a depth of five meters.
“This is the deepest pool in the world,” Michal Braszczynski, a 47-year-old diving enthusiast and director of Deepspot, told AFP at Saturday’s opening.
To date, the Guinness Book of Records has identified a 42-meter-deep pool in the city of Montegorto Terme, Italy as the deepest pool in the world.
However, the world’s deepest pool, which just opened in Poland next year, could be overtaken by the 50-meter-high Blue Abyss pool, which is scheduled to open in the UK.
On the first business day of the new batch, about ten clients take the exam for an instructor license.
“There are no fish or spectacular coral reefs here, so it is not a substitute for the sea, but it is definitely a great place to learn and practice so that you can dive safely in open water,” said Przemyslaw Kacprzak, 39-year-old diving instructor. – and lots of fun here! It’s like a kindergarten for divers! “
Mr Braszczynski said firefighters and the military would also use the pool.
About 5,000 cubic meters of concrete were used to build this pond in more than two years. The construction cost is around 40 million. zlotys (EUR 8.9 million).
