Outdoor training pool at Moscow’s Lyzhniki olympic complex

This is the second post in a series on swimming pools in Moscow. The Aqua complex on Lyzhniki’s huge olympic sport area Moskva offers a high-quality outdoor pool. The pool has eight 50 meters lanes. There are no starting blocks on either side of the pool. The admission fee for a 90-minutes session is 800 roubles. In contrast to most public pools admission does not require a medical certificate!

The pool is locate just next to Воробьевы горы (Sparrow Hills) metro station on the famous red line (pictured below). An alternative is to exit Moscow’s new rapid transports system’s (МЦК, Moscow Central Circle) Lyzhniki station.
