You’ve seen the biggest pool in the world. Now get ready for the deepest! And we do mean deep: The Deepspot, located near Warsaw, Poland, sinks to an incredible, unprecedented depth of 148 feet (45 meters), which is about a 15-story building. The amount of water needed to fill it is equivalent to 27 Olympic-size swimming pools! It will officially get crowned the world’s deepest pool when it opens in August, unseating the current record-holder, Y-40 The Deep Joy pool in Italy, which is 131 feet.
Deepspot is designed for divers to practice and train in—it even has structures that simulate diving into caves—but it is open to beginners as well. The water is heated slightly above normal, so that people can swim without needing wetsuits.
If you don’t want to get your fins wet, there’s a see-through walkway that tunnels right through the pool itself, from one wall to the other, so you can get the immersive experience without a single splash. (And unlike in The Meg, you won’t have to worry about any giant sharks trying to ram into the glass.)
Deepspot isn't just a pool though—it will be a full-on destination, built to accommodate underground restaurants, hotel rooms, and conference spaces, most with windows that look directly into the pool, so you can see all the action. Because it’s indoors and heated, the pool will be accessible year-round, so even in the dead of winter, you can live out your mermaid fantasies, any time you want!
