Summertime is here! In some parts of the world (especially Eastern Europe), it’s already so hot you can barely stroll without thinking of taking a cool bath at home or, why not, in some luxurious swimming pool. It is believed that the first swimming pool was built in modern-day Pakistan, at the Mohenjo-Daro – it was called the Great Bath. It’s also thought that the Great Bath was dug during the third millennium before Christ. It measures 12/7 meters and is lined with bricks while covered in a tar-based material. Ancient Greeks and the Roman Empire also built artificial pools. They served many purposes, including training, water games, and military exercises. Today we are going to present you with ten great swimming pools. Enjoy!
