Deepest pool in the world

A new pool in Italy holds a world record for the deepest swimming pool ever built and has depths equivalent to a 12-story building.

Y-40 Deep Joy pool is a terrifying 137-feet deep and 59-feet wide.  Housed on the grounds of Hotel Terme Millepini near Padua, Italy, it was designed by architect Emanuele Boaretto, who wanted “to build the best swimming pool in the world.”  In June, the Guinness World Records-certified it as the world’s deepest swimming pool for scuba diving.

Swimmers can scuba dive, free dive or join in on aqua fitness sessions.  It also has several intermediate depths ranging from 4-feet to 40-feet deep, before plummeting the whole 137 feet, and has underwater caves for cave diving beginners.

Too chicken to get wet?  There is also a transparent tunnel 16 ft. down where visitors can view the action down below.
