Koper municipal pool

Koper, Slovenia

A run-down community and competition pool in Koper, Slovenia, is brought brilliantly back-to-life using Myrtha RenovAction Technology.

 

Abandoned during an economic crisis more than a decade ago, the town of Koper’s municipal Olympic swimming pool had deteriorated beyond repair by the time they were able to consider re-opening it.

Standing next to the old pool, is Arena Bonifika, home to basketball, handball and other activities. Bonifika has emerged as a thriving destination for competitive sports and fitness, but a modern community and competition pool was needed to offer a full spectrum of land and aquatic sports to the Istrian town.

 

The old concrete pool was unsalvageable but Myrtha Pools’ flexible and innovative RenovAction Technology, with its modular stainless-steel system, was able to affordably replace the old facility with a beautiful (like) new aquatic venue.

The project delivered the Koper community a 10-lane Olympic pool, used for competitive swimming and water polo, but also for community activities, teaching swimming and more.

 

The new facility, equipped with a full set of Myrtha Track-Start Blocks, and a flow-through, moveable bulkhead (making it possible to create separate areas for different activities within the pool) has been built to FINA’s international competition standards for swimming and water polo. It regularly attracts large crowds of spectators to its 1000-seat gallery for top-quality aquatic events.
