Swimming is a perfect sport for all ages. Now that the weather is not the best anymore, you can still enjoy it thanks to the indoor facilities. For those who love to swim, read our overview of the indoor swimming pools in Bratislava.
This is the only place in Bratislava with a 50 m long swimming pool (other places have 25 m max) with the depth of 1,25 – 3,5 m. Thus it is very popular and unfortunately quite packed, especially during the evening hours. Moreover, it has some of its tracks booked for the swimming courses which makes it even more crowded for the public. There is another 25 m long swimming pool with the depth of 1 – 1,2 m. Another plus is its late opening hours.

The second location of Golem with a swimming pool is the one in Bory mall. It has one 25 m long swimming pool with 1,3 m depth and 8 swimming trails. It was built based on the standards of the International Swimming Association FINA. There is also a relaxation pool and a children’s pool.
WELLNESS CENTER HOTEL NIVY
One of the swimming pools here is intended for swimming (25×10 m) and the second one has various wellness facilities such as massage jets, water park mushroom and 3 jacuzzi to fit 16 people. Many people consider this place to be one of the best options as less people know about it, however we think it tends to get crowded lately. Don’t expect any pompous luxury though – the premises have that socialism touch.
