Here’s a new addition to the
European swimming pool agenda. And this one is not some fancy Parisian resort pool. In fact, it has to be the most remote (and cold) pool I’ve see so far.
Here’s how to find Seljavallalaug pool: From Reykjavík, Iceland, drive two-and-a-half-hours along the coast. Then park and hike 20 minutes past some glaciers, volcanoes, and a waterfall. 😮 Now jump in!
Once you get there, it’s free. In the summer, it might be
“dyed a beautiful shade of green” due to algae, not unlike our own Barton Springs Pool here in Austin.
If I ever make it to Iceland, I’ll remember to bring my swim suit (and a really warm towel)!
Here’s another amazing
spa in Budapest and new entry for the European spa/swimming tour.
There seems to be
a lot going on at this spa – indoor areas, outdoor areas, amazing architecture, and more.
Szechenyi Baths in Budapest is now on my fantasy European pool/spa itinerary. Built in 1913, this pool is “the most visited and much praised attraction in Budapest: relaxing, fun, affordable and, at night, romantic.”
Apparently those Hungarians even like to hang out and play chess in the pool (when they’re not making out 🤷🏻♂️).
Another destination for my
European pool/spa tour, thanks to the #accidentallywesanderson hashtag on Instagram.
This is a
municipal pool in Wroclaw, Poland. 🤩
More fodder for the
European pool / bath / spa tour. This one another classes London pool.
European pool tour goodness, this one in Berlin. 🥰. I won’t even try to say the name.
Another swimming pool to add to the
swimming pool / lido / spa / bath tour of Great Britain! This one is in Glasgow.
This place hits two of my personal sweet spots: swimming
and amazing architecture. 🤩
👉 Victoria Baths: Manchester’s Water Palace
If I ever get to Manchester, and this place is actually
open, I know where I’m going to get my exercise. In fact, I’d love to do a swimming pool / lido / bath / spa tour of the UK. Who’s down?
