'A kindergarten for divers': World's deepest swimming pool opens its doors in Poland


The previous record belonged to a 42-metre-deep swimming pool in Italy. The new 'Deepspot' pool in Poland won't hold the record for very long, either.

Deepspot is a diving pool that goes 45.5m (150ft) down and provides a space for divers to train.

It includes a ship wreck and separate chambers for divers to explore.

Deepspot's president said he hopes the pool will also be used for training by firefighters and the army, not just scuba divers.
