The history of the creation of the pool dates back to ancient Greece. The local sages considered swimming to be as necessary and beneficial as the ability to read. And they devoted a lot of time and money to water procedures. If to travel back to the times of the Romans and Gaius Cilius the Maecenas, it is possible to find out that he created the first Jacuzzi style pool on the planet (it was about 1 year BC). Therefore, it is not surprising that in the modern world, relaxing by the pool is such a favorite pastime among most people in the hot seasons.
Every year designers try to come up with something extraordinary and surpass everything that was created earlier. Some of them even got into the Guinness Book of Records with their creatures. But you can arrange your own piece of paradise without leaving home, by building a pool in the yard. And in order to provide even more comfort during your summer vacation, you can install one or more outdoor showers, depending on the size of the yard. It is no longer difficult to buy outdoor showeR now, you just have to compare the models existing on the market and choose the best option for yourself.
So, what are the most interesting and unusual pools in the world?
There are at least five pools that got to the World Book of Records and became the most popular tourist spots. They are:
1. Pool on the roof of Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore
Singapore designers decided to build such a swimming pool that the ancient Greeks never dreamed of. It is located on the roof of a popular hotel, 200 meters above the ground. The water in the pool overflows the edge of the skyscraper, but does not fall onto the ground. It goes through a special water collector with a filter and gets back into the pool. Are you afraid of heights? Then you should better not swim there.
2. Suspended Glass-bottomed pool in Hong Kong
Another very high-leveled and rather extreme pool was built in Hong Kong. It is named suspended for its location. The pool is on the 29th floor of the hotel, a glass balcony with water literally hangs over the city.
