Today Moscow weather can hardly inspire thoughts about swimming outdoors. But in the outdoor swimming pool of the sports complex "Luzhniki" with the water temperature 27-29 degrees the swimmers can enjoy swimming even in the frosty days as they get to the main tracks from the warm halls through special water cannels.
In the complex there are five swimming pools. Two outdoor pools with 50 and 25 meters tracks are surrounded with spectators' stands for 8,000 seats. Under the stands there are three indoor pools: two of them for trainings and one for children 25 meters long and only 80 cm deep.
The water isn’t processed with chlorine here, instead they use hypochlorite, which has no specific odor.
One-time ticket price: On weekdays From 07:00 till 09:00 - 400 rubles per hour From 09:00 till 18:00 - 350 rubles per hour From 19:00 till 21:30 - 500 rubles per hour On weekends — 400 rubles per hour
