Podolí has by far the most famous (and most frequented) swimming pool in Prague. It has one indoor pool, two outdoor pools, a jacuzzi and a sauna. On the adjoining lawn, which is packed on hot days, you can relax and enjoy the sunshine.
Admission: CZK 180 / approximately EUR 7 per day
The swimming pool, located very close to the Prague Castle (St. Vitus Cathedral is actually visible from there) is an ideal place for people with children. You will surely appreciate the large toboggan, the playground, table tennis tables and beach volleyball courts.

This swimming pool is located in the very heart of the Divoká Šárka wildlife reserve, just a few minutes from the tram line leading from the centre, and is therefore a great place to escape the bustle of the big city.
The natural water reservoir is fed with water from a stream, so the water is quite cold and offers an ideal refuge from high temperatures.
If you approach the pool from the back, you will enjoy the short walk through natural surroundings. Don’t be alarmed, you will be walking past a nudist beach ...
Admission: CZK 90 / approximately EUR 4 per day
Žluté lázně (Yellow Spa)
Directly opposite the Podolí swimming pool, on the banks of the Vltava River, is an area with a sandy beach, where local people like to spend their weekends. You can play beach volleyball or pétanque, table tennis and other sports, like our very own special favourite – paddleboarding.
If you are courageous enough, you can even take a dip in the Vltava itself!
Admission: CZK 80 / approximately EUR 4 per day (from 17:00 for free).

Admission: CZK 100 / approximately EUR 4 per day during the working week and CZK 150 / approximately EUR 6 at the weekend
