The world's deepest swimming pool, completed earlier this year, is located in the small Italian town of Montegrotto Terme — and simply calling it deep might be an understatement.

The pool, which measures 21 X 18 meters (69 X 59 feet) and has a maximum depth of 40 meters (131 feet), contains 4,300 cubic meters of spa water and is kept at the constant temperature of 32 to 34 Celsius (about 90 degrees fahrenheit).

It is dubbed the "Y-40."

"Y-40 is unique in its field thanks to the spa water, which cannot be outsourced. We want to open up new medium and long term work prospects to try and gurantee prosperity, not only for my company but also for the surrounding land and society," archiect Emanuele Boaretto previously said.

The pool is located inside the 4-star Hotel Terme Millepini and was made with the goal of creating "the best swimming pool in the world," according to its official website.

Activities at the pool include scuba diving, free diving, aqua fitness, watsu, hydro-kinesi therapy and special activities for pregnant women.

The world's largest swimming pool, completed in 2006, is located at the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Algarrobo, Chile. It is estimated to have cost more than $1 billion to construct and covers nearly 20 acres.
