Deepspot: World’s Deepest Diving Pool Opened in Poland

The deepest swimming pool in the world – the Deepspot in Poland – has now finally opened it’s doors and is greeting divers.

The Deepspot, situated close to Warsaw, Poland, is 45m / 148ft deep and has stolen the crown of deepest pool in the world from the Y-40 Deep Joy, which can be found in the northern Italian town of Montegrotto Terme and is 42m / 138 feet deep.

The impressive facility is a “kindergarten for divers” and the first photos and videos being posted on social media by the first scuba divers and freedivers at the pool are making us green with envy.

Przemyslaw Kacprzak, a 39-year-old diving instructor, could barely contain their excitement: “There are no magnificent fish or coral reefs here so it is no substitute for the sea but it is definitely a good place to learn and to train in order to dive safely in open water.”

Jerzy Nowacki, a 30-year-old forestry officer, and diving novice had this to say: “For my first time, we went down five meters but you can see all the way to the bottom – the wreck, the caves – it’s magnificent!”

The facility also has some impressive tunnels and features including this one that looks like it comes straight out of a Tomb Raider movie:

Lovely House Built by a Russian Blacksmith

We want to show you a very unusual house built by a Russian blacksmith Kirillov for his family. The house is situated in Kunara village, between Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Tagil. Unfortunately, the blacksmith passed away almost 20 years ago.

h/t: englishrussia

In fact, the village populated only by 143 people as per 2010 (even fewer now), does not have anything interesting but this very house. Locals lovingly call it a gingerbread house. It was being built since 1954 t0 1967. All decor elements are made from wood and metal.

May the sun be forever, may the sky be forever!”

“May mother live forever, may the peace be forever”




S. I. Kirillov died in 2001. He made his grave with his own hands. His wife died in 2019. She’s buried next to her husband.

This project became the meaning of his life.

Kind people helped to restore the house after the death of the author.

Some people tried to buy the house and offered big money, but the family never agreed to sell it.
