Kopališče Tivoli

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The pool is closed in summer. Summer swimming is possible at Plavalni Klub Ilirija, which is located about 200 metres to the southeast, HERE on Google Maps.
The pool is striped on the bottom for eight lanes, but has additional anchors for lane ropes that can be used to create nine lanes.

Facility Reviews

The pool is in the middle of Tivoli Park in a verdigris-coloured, copper-roofed building. If approaching by foot from the centre of Ljubljana, walk up the steps on the left side of Celovska cesta directly after having passed under the railway bridge. The pool building is across the car park. The pool entrance (which is small and not well signposted) is on the right side towards the back of the building.

When visiting for the first time, ask the receptionist to walk you through the process, particularly the use of the chipped wristband which will be issued to you (this controls use of lockers and exit from the facility).

A modern facility with long opening hours during the winter months (available from 6 AM on most weekdays). Laned for lap swimming. Reasonably busy on my visit (6:30 AM on a weekday) but good lane discipline.
[March, 2014]
I laughed to read about the chipped wristband in the first review. There has perhaps been some infrastructure decay since 2014, but no one explained it to me. Visually clear graphics encouraged me to use it to enter the pool. It served no other purpose, as the chip reader to exit the pool is broken, and I did what all the Slovenes did and just left it on the (unattended) desk.

Although, this is one of those cabana-style changing rooms, there are separate showers for males and females, permitting one wash 100% of one's body surface without exposing it to the view of another gender. No swim cap required.
[May, 2017]
The wristband worked effectively as expected: It allowed entry into the facility; it was used to assign lockers; and it was used to exit the facility. Once you choose a locker, touch it to the monitor screen located midway in a row of lockers, then touch it to your locker to lock it. To retrieve your items after a swim, touch the band to the monitor and your locker number will appear on the screen and your locker will open.

At 7:30 AM the lap lanes were reserved for classes and teams. The remaining combined three lanes were for general swimming, making lap swims at a fast pace a challenge. Swimmers did not follow any order and it was distracting to have to frequently look to see if you would collide with another swimmer.

There is a café upstairs with an aerial view of the pool.
