A newly opened business in Poland is offering training services for scuba divers in its 148-foot-deep pool -- the deepest swimming pool in the world.
Deepspot, which opened its doors during the weekend in Mszczonow, boasts a 148-foot-deep pool that holds more than 280,000 cubic feet of water -- the same amount as 27 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
The pool features underwater caves, recreations of Mayan ruins and a shipwreck reproduction. The pool is designed for scuba training and will be used to train divers for the Polish army and firefighters, officials said.
The business also features a hotel with underwater views, a tunnel for spectators to watch the divers, a restaurant and several meeting rooms.
