This one time dilapidated building housing a swimming pool is now a place for culture. The building was built between 1957–1962, based on Ladislav Greč’s design.
Decoration was provided by Helena Ondrušová-Viktorínová. The roofed part of the swimming pool complex had to be closed in 1992. In its time it was one of the most beautiful architectural buildings in Czechoslovakia and its timeless architecture remains unique even today.
Its original appearance is nearly entirely preserved with only the most damaged areas demolished and replaced. A typical swimming mosaic has been maintained and the area where the pool once was is now used for art exhibitions, workshops, public discussions with artists and gala contemporary art openings.
The site is open Tuesdays through Sundays.
Admission: from 1€ (depends on performance).
