General info

Sports are international, and often require very little communication in Czech. Although, sometimes the very opposite is true. Let’s have a look at the possibilities in Brno:

Swimming Pools

A swimming pool in Czech is called either “koupaliště” (outdoor) or “bazén” (mostly referring to indoor).

Outdoors

Outdoor swimming pools are open only during the hot months of the year, usually starting in June and finishing in September – the exact date depends on the weather. If you are unsure, check the pool’s website first, they always announce when they are opening and closing.

Indoors

Pools are sometimes booked for group swimming lessons, either partly or fully. We recommend first checking their calendar (always accessible on their webpage) to make sure there is at least one line free for the public.

Swimming pools are usually open from early morning hours (6-7 am) until late evenings (10 pm) to accommodate to peoples shifts at work.

A list of outdoor and indoor swimming pools can be found here: brno.cz/koupaliste or brnomesto.eu/bazeny-brno(the lists are in Czech).

Aquaparks

To spend a whole day in a large water attraction, one has to travel a bit. It is usually worth a day trip, though.

You can find some aquaparks in the lists mentioned above. Most notable are: Aqualand Moravia or Aquapark Kohoutovice.
