Issue 3/2016 is presenting pools and wellness facilities.

The times when municipal baths had the sole purposes of sustaining health and fostering competitive swimming are long gone. Many of these facilities are showing signs of wear and have to be urgently modernised or even abandoned for economic reasons. When it comes to modernising or converting existing pools or building new ones, the plans today envisage, in addition to a competitive swimming area, fun and children’s areas and an extensive wellness complex as well. This is not just because pool users expect a multitude of attractions for an enjoyable day at the pool. While wishing to improve their attractiveness, pools also see wellness as a strong source of income.

In this issue we present several examples of rehabilitation and upgrading of old pools and new spas.
