Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; 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 access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, 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 each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. 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 your area and visiting for the first time.
To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.
Adult Admission Price & Policy
Note: Admission policies and prices shown in Swimmers Guide listings are believed to be correct as of the date(s) shown in brackets.

This site works best when its users take an active role in the maintenance of the data.
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.
