  • Nice tree area where you can sunbathe and enjoy. The pool was clean and even though it was packed it was comfortable to be there. Water was a bit too cold for my taste.
  • A fantastic experience. This outdoor pool is cooled down to complicate the workout. The swim lane is longer than usual. Those who not only go for sunbathing in the outdoor pool, but also to train should not miss this place under any circumstances. Of course, don’t forget swimming trunks!
