Dubai, the city with the tallest building in the world (Burj Khalifa), now also has the deepest swimming pool. In total, the pool is 60 meters deep and is part of one of the newest attractions in Dubai: ‘Deep Dive Dubai’. The son of the emir of Dubai was already allowed to explore the underwater world.
With a depth of 60 meters, the pool breaks the former world record of 45 meters measured in a pool in Poland. About 14 million liters of freshwater are needed to fill the pool. However, the showpiece of Deep Dive Dubai is not the 60-meter deep shaft, but the underwater city that lies above it.
Both experienced and inexperienced divers can discover the deserted city and, for example, play pool in one of the various apartments. The city can also be used for filming.
The son of the Emir of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (38), better known as ‘Fazza’ or the Crown Prince of Dubai, was allowed to test the pool.
Currently, you can only enter the pool by invitation, the owners hope to open it to the public at the end of this month.
