Important Notice Please Read

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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.

Facility Reviews

The staff was very helpful, although they spoke no English. The pools were clean and the other swimmers were very considerate, though the pool was busy. A good experience at a good price.
There are no ropes or anti-turbulence lane dividers for thepublic swimming lanes. These are only used with swim clubs. So the pool gets very turbulent and you have to avoid other swimmers, who do not swim all in an ordered way. Very courteous swimmers generally, however.
This facility gets very crowded all day, at least in the summer. At 7 AM it is mostly serious swimmers, so it's easier to fit in and get a workout. Later in the day, the indoor pool is a ridiculous mix of people doing freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, floating, and kids splashing. To swim here you must keep your head up and look ahead and around to navigate the various people. The outdoor pool is an even-crazier jumble of people.

We swam here in the morning, between 9 and 11 AM. There were lane markers and a dedicated lane for open swim. The oldest swim team in Prague, The Bohemians, were training alongside us, but when they were done the coach said all lanes are open to public swim. Excellent facility. A real Prague gem.

This pool was awesome. I had to share my full-width, 50m lane with only two other swimmers. It has perfect air, water quality, and temperature, and it's reasonably priced.

Easy to get to; take the #17 tram from town for a straight-shot out to the pool. Highly recommend!
