The Deepest Pool In The World is Set To Open In Poland This Autumn
Thalassophobia is the compulsive fear of deep water. And while you probably don't need to worry about it while you're skirting round puddles or having a shower - this news might be triggering. The world's deepest pool is opening in Poland in the autumn - and it's a little deeper than your local swimming bath.
With incredible depths of 45 metres and a water volume equivalent to 27 normal swimming pools, DeepSpot will open its doors to the public later this year in the central Polish town of Mszczonow (about 25 miles from Warsaw).
According to local reports, the pool will be 45 metres (or 148 feet) deep.
That's a full five meters (or 16 feet) deeper than the present record holder in the north Italian town of Montegrotto Terme.
It's set to be accessible to everyone, not only scuba divers, and will include an underwater tunnel to explore, hotel rooms overlooking the pool, as well as restaurants and conference rooms.
