Created as a training site for divers, the Deepspot diving pool will hold 8,000 cubic meters of water when completed -- that's 27 times more water than standard 25-meter pools.

For a more comfortable dive experience that will also allow free divers to forego wetsuits, water temperature will be warmer than standard pool temperatures.

The pool opens in Mszczonow about an hour's drive outside Warsaw, by the same group that operates an indoor skydiving attraction, Flyspot.
