What our visitors said

 As a child, I wanted to train swimming, but Novo mesto did not offer that possibility. Nevertheless, it is my favorite form of recreation and I often swam in sports pools in Ljubljana. I am overjoyed that I can swim at my hometown now. Our swimming pool is better than any other, the view from the water of the greenery fills you with special energy.


Experts emphasize how useful swimming is for children, for the development of the child’s skeleton, for good posture, heart and lungs, for fitness and well-being. That’s why I wanted all my children to attend swimming lessons and I took them to the swimming pools nearby. I am happy that my youngest child will be able to learn to swim in a nice new pool in our hometown.


Finally, The swimmers who have outgrown the Grm pool and want more serious swimming can only say: “Finally!” September is here and it’s time for a real swimming pool, which was eagerly expected by the capital of Dolenjska Region and by all those who can’t wait to swim. The first jump into the pool justified all our expectations. Its location, the connection with nature and the direct proximity to the forest make swimming in this complex even more inviting and special. It will be a pleasure to swim, to follow the events, results and young talents that the new pool will attract in the future.

When we were first testing the pool, we tried to get used to the fact that the pool is longer than the one in Grm, that the water is cooler, that it has everything that real sports pools have. Well, it’s not hard to get used to better things. As we swim, between the short breaths we see roe deer and rabbits running across the meadow next to the forest. The new pool really is superb!

 As a member of PKNM, I had the privilege of being able to swim in our new pool. I’m impressed with the location, being out of the way of walkers. The pool offers me the possibility of undisturbed swimming, which we haven’t had in the Dolenjska Region until now. I am grateful to witness the historic event. I wish everyone to enjoy swimming.
