Divers who are captivated by Belize’s Great Blue Hole no longer have to travel to Central America – or even the ocean – to experience the plunge. The world’s deepest pool is opening in Poland this fall and is positioned to be the perfect training spot for beginner and professional scuba divers.

At its deepest point, the Deepspot pool is 148 feet deep and holds 27 times the amount of water of an average pool. Divers can explore overhangs and underwater caves, while non-divers can watch from an underwater tunnel. Deepspot will also have conference rooms, training rooms, and hotel rooms with underwater views of the pool’s interior.

The pool is being built in Mszczonow, a town southwest of Warsaw, and will be constructed using an estimated 1,100 tons of steel.

When it opens, Deepspot will dethrone the current deepest pool, Italy's Y-40 Deep Joy. However Deepspot may be surpassed as soon as 2020 by a pool in Britain that is being designed to be 164 feet deep.
