Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held;
we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.
We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.
The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.
For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)
Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

There are three pools, one used for aqua aerobics classes. A basic swim is 10 zlotys (about US$4 at the moment); lockers are free and guarded. The entry fees buys an hour of swim time, starting on the hour, so try to arrive and be ready as close to the top of the hour to maximize pool time. The pace tends to be relaxed, and even on weekends it's not what a New Yorker would call crowded.
This is a spotless facility with long opening hours. The lanes are not speed differentiated, so make a judgment as to where you best fit in. On my early morning visits, there were never more than three swimmers per lane. Good lane discipline; the keep right principle applies.
Oddity number one: The pool that I used (Basen 1: 25 metres) has the greatest distance between the water surface and the pool edge that I've ever encountered - by my reckoning about three feet! Unless you have very long arms and superhuman upper body strength, you'll have to resort to the ladders to get out of the water. Oddity number two: Wroclaw is littered with some 350 tiny bronze gnomes, a reminder of the emblem of the Orange Alternative movement established locally in 1982 as a symbol of opposition to the then Communist administration. Today's gnomes are placed to celebrate the equality, diversity, and inclusion of all citizens. Swimmers will find a bronze gnome just inside the entrance to Basen 1.
