Swimming season starts in Prague

Some pools and water parks are seeing some changes since last year

With the warm weather, residents of Prague are looking forward to taking advantage of the area's pools and aquaparks. These are mostly the same as last year, but a few places have small changes.

Aquapalace Praha, the country's largest, is just outside of Prague in the town of Čestlice and has just started a new season. Visitors will soon be able to use self-service digital kiosks in the entry vestibule that will allow for easy ticket purchase and a quick check-in. The area has been redecorated with vines and exotic animals and some staff will wear thematic costumes.

The aquapark recently announced a new price list that no longer offers hourly entry. The new minimum is three hours.

In the city itself, Aquapark Šutka in Prague 8 will have the same fees as last year, and increases are not currently planned. The aquapark is operated by a city-owned company and has pools for exercise are well as an aquapark for fun and a sauna. Hours are different for each part.

The city plans to expand the complex, which opened at the end of 2012, but the timeline for the expansion has not been announced. The center is open all year.

The Petynka swimming area, operated by Prague 6, reopened at the start of May. A new 25-meter pool with a surrounding biotope is planned and could be completed within three years.

After years of neglect, the swimming pool in Lhotka in Prague 4 is being renovated. Prague 4 plans to open a new area with a biotope swimming pool, but it is still unclear whether the work will be finished this season. The area went into decline during the 1980s.

Prague 4 has chosen a company to operate the swimming area but will oversee the level of the entry and parking fees to make sure it remains accessible. Water in the pool will be natural rainwater, and not chlorinated.

New swimming pools are also being built in a new sports complex in Řepy and at Radotín. The first could open this November, the second in January 2019.

These are just some of the indoor and outdoor swimming areas in and around Prague.
