In the Střešovice district of Prague, the Petynka swimming pool is very popular with residents. There is a cozy beach on the lawn here, the water in the pool is always clean and warm (you can come to swim even in cooler weather). The complex works from the beginning of May to the end of September.
The 50-meter pool underwent major repairs a couple of years ago. On the territory near the open-air pool new benches and places for relaxation appeared, a paddling pool near the water slide, changing rooms and showers were repaired.

Panoramic View Pools
If you happen to experience bad weather in the summer but still feel like swimming, there are two places which are a little bit different from the usual pools. This is because they are located on the floors of the hotels, which offer a beautiful view of Prague.
They are less budget-friendly, but the special view you get is worth it. We found two places where you can visit such a pool. The first one is at Corinthia Hotel, which is close to Vysehrad metro station, and also Panorama Hotel, close to Pankrác station.
A giant water park in Prague with the longest water slide in the Czech Republic is open all year round. Plus – a lot of water rides for every taste, minus – expensive tickets and overcrowding, even in less favorable weather.
It is the largest water park in Central Europe with water rides and saunas, a spa center and a fitness center. Children will especially love the themed halls – the Adventure Palace and the Treasure Palace.
The first one provides a massive dose of adrenaline: there are 8 slides up to 140 meters long and 3 extreme slides. For the bravest there is a Spacebowl attraction: a strong current of water will carry the swimmers to a distance of 100 m.
The second hall has a fairy-tale atmosphere, the central place is occupied by the wreckage of a pirate ship. Every night there is a water laser show with 3D effects. In general, the water park has so many attractions and services that it would need a separate review. You can find out more about them on the official website or on site.
Opening hours: on weekdays from 10:00 to 22:00, on weekends from 09:00 to 22:00
Admission: 999 CZK for adults and 799 CZK for children all day
