The only outdoor swimming pool in Bratislava’s Old Town borough, Ekoiuventa, or more commonly known as Mičurin, has opened its doors to the first visitors.

As many as 150 bathers can enjoy their time by or in the pool.

Visitors will have at their disposal vending machines from which they can buy baguettes, drinks, and coffee. People may also rent a sun lounger.

“A playground and mini pools await the youngest visitors. Safety will be supervised by trained lifeguards,” said the Slovak Youth Institute (IUVENTA), the pool’s operator.

Located on 2 Búdkova Street, the pool 20m in length and with a depth of 1.5m is open from 9:00 to 19:00 every sunny day until September 15.

Having been closed down for two years, the refurbished Mičurin pool reopened in 2017.
