With its deepest point at 45,5 meters (147 feet) the pool, called Deepspot, beats the Y-40 diving pool in the Italian town of Montegrotto Terme, which according to the Guinness Book of World Records has a maximum depth of 42 meters.

The main part of the pool is 20 meters deep and the deepest part is surrounded by a large concrete tube.

The pool is suitable for divers of all skill levels and contains 8,000 cubic meters of water, 27 times that of a normal swimming pool 25 meters in length, according to Deepspot's website.
