The Guinness record of the deepest pool in the world was taken over this year by Y-40, the main attraction at the 4 star Hotel Millepini Terme, in Italy.
With a maximum depth of 40 meters (138 feet) – which is equivalent with the height of a 12-story building- the impressive facility surpasses Nemo 33 (Belgium), which owned the title of world’s deepest pool before Y-40 was completed.
Designed by architect Emanuele Boaretto, and consulted with high profile professionals in various underwater sports, Y-40 was created with the goal of becoming the ‘best swimming pool in the world’.
Through the way it was made, with various intermediate depths, the pool is an attraction for a large category of people: advanced or beginner scuba enthusiasts, freedivers, film producers, photographers and so on.
Y-40 contains underwater caves aimed at training scuba divers and a suspended transparent viewing tunnel that allows spectators to watch the divers in action. It is filled with 4.3 million liters (1.1 million gallons) of thermal water maintained at a temperature of 32-34°C, meaning you can dive and swim without having to wear a wet suit need in open seas or lakes.
Hotel Millepini Terme is located inside the Italian National Park of the Euganean Hills, an area of great beauty and rich history. It is also at 1.5 km far from the center of Montegrotto Terme said to be Europe’s largest area of thermal springs.
