Let's start off by saying I might be a little biased on this review. I love watching and following anything to do with swimming history. When visited I didn't even think to bring a suit. I bought one from the front desk for really cheap and headed straight to the pool. I spend hours going off the platforms and diving... More

This very traditional part of the 1952 Olympic Games venue is superb for regular swim training. The season is reasonably long (May to September) and the serial flash-in ticket is very convenient without being overpriced. Vault jumping and waterrunning are also well arranged. Overall, the track etiquette of the swimmers in the 50 metre main pool is good (except for... More

There are are outside swimming pools and a lot of fun at summer days. There are always a lot of people but it is good for swimming if the weather is good.

Good place to have fun in the sun! Always clean and nice athmosphere. Jumping towers to 1-5m. Located some distance from the center, but every local knows this place so you probably will find it anyway

An outdoor swimming pool open during summer months (may-september). Great place to spend a warm day with family and friends on having a bit of sport and making a picnic on the grass that surrounds the pool. I recommend bringing your own food as there are not any good options available at the stadium. It can get crowded on hot... More

Very popular during summer. Take a picnic blanket with your towel, as you lay on the grass by the pools. I recommend to take apicnic basket with you, nothing special sold over there.

The water temperature was nice, even though it was a bit cold and windy outside. The kids pool was totally crowded. There were two playgrounds there for kids. There is also the 50 meter pool and the jumping boards.

Nostalgic, built in the 50s, the swimming stadium is a great (and cheap) place to spend a sunny happy summer day. There's a big 100m pool, a a 10m jumping tower with a smaller deep pool, a bigger childrens' pool and a small baby pool, and a few water slides (separate cost) as well. There's also a gym, and good... More
