The Podolí Swimming Stadium is one of the less popular sports venues in Prague. It offers two outdoor and one indoor swimming pool, an outdoor water slide, a large grassy area for summer sunbathing, as well as a whole range of additional services such as steam or sauna, rehabilitation services and a solarium.

The Podolí Swimming Stadium, located on the Vltava embankment near the unique historical complex Vyšehrad , has been offering its services to all lovers of swimming and active recreation for over four decades.

All swimmers have access to an indoor 50-meter pool , an outdoor 50- and 33-meter pool, an outdoor children’s wading pool, an outdoor water slide with a lap pool, a steam room (included in the price of entry to the pool), a sauna(for women, for men, common), solarium, rehabilitation, restaurant and buffet. The large indoor pool is also used for training by Czech representatives in swimming, water polo and diving, swimming teams, pupils of primary sports schools, students of secondary schools and universities, and at the same time various sports competitions and trainings are held here. Therefore, free swimming is possible during all operating hours in the outdoor heated pool 33m x 20m with a water temperature of 26-27°C and in the indoor pool according to the schedule of rented hours and program information.

Podolí Swimming Stadium is easily accessible , as it can be reached from the center of Prague by several tram lines in just a few minutes. Another advantage of Podolí is the long opening hours. With few exceptions, it isthe entire area is open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. , which is sure to be appreciated by anyone who is troubled by a lack of free time.

The Podolský swimming stadium is a cultural monument
The construction of the generous structure in the so-called Brussels style was given the status of a cultural monument at the end of 2020 . The stadium is thus protected against demolition. The unique design of the Podol area is primarily the design of the pool hall, which consists of round reinforced concrete beams . The use of the roof of the indoor pool as a grandstand is also unusual.

The swimming stadium was built between 1958 and 1965 according to the design of architect Richard Ferdinand Podzemný.
