It took about 2 years for completion but Rijeka can now boast of having the most beautiful swimming pool complex of it's kind in the whole of the Mediterranean. The Kantrida Swimming Pool Complex will consist of 5 pools altogether. The 2 Olympic size pools will be used for the upcoming European Short Track Swimming Championships taking place Dec 11-14. However, maybe the best news is that Rijeka's citizens will also have the opportunity to use the facilities when the competitions are over, and thus provide excellent training facilities for future swimming athletes.
