the deepest swimming pool in the world


nemo 33 is the deepest pool on earth. it's in brussels and 105 feet deep and 2.5 million litres of chlorine-free water. it was designed by belgian civil engineer john beernaerts and his vision was to create an environment to mimic the caribbean (which is why the water is 33 degrees celsius). since 2004, over 100,000 divers have visited nemo.
