Pool Velenje



The Swimming Pool Velenje is located in the recreational zone south of “Šaleška cesta”, nearby the city centre. The pool was built in 1971, but due to executional defects, part of the building had to be removed. In 1984, a new part (the pool trough and engine room) was built.

In addition to the swimming pool, Velenje also got its first fitness centre (so called: Trim Cabinet) and two Finnish saunas.

Despite the improvement, the offer soon became inadequate for modern needs. This therefore led to the so called “Renovation and extension of the swimming pool” project in 2006-2007, which added a small pool for non-swimmers and bettered the sauna and fitness area. In 2018, the space that was used for catering was transformed into a functional training studio.

As part of the energy renovation that was carried out in 2019, the entire building was modernised again. It was made even more “energy-efficient” with a new central control system, thermal insulation of the external walls, roof and the ceiling, underfloor heating in the swimming pool area, electric lighting, ventilation system and waterproof and thermal insulation in the swimming pool area. Furthermore, we replaced the previous energy-inefficient furniture, we installed new pool water treatment plants in the small and the large swimming pool area, renovated the hot water treatment plant, installed a “UF” system for the pool water treatment, replaced the ceramics of the floor and the walls in the large pool area, upgraded the fitness area and placed new changing rooms for the fitness visitors.

The total surface area of the premises:
1.414. 42 m2, of which 375. 0 m2 is water surface.

Today, The Swimming Pool Velenje is a modern Sport and Recreation Centre for all sport and relaxation enthusiasts. We strive to offer quality options for your leisure time. We are cleaning the property on regular basis, ensuring smooth running of our premises as well as guaranteeing the satisfaction of our customers. Our facility is being used by PK Velenje, schools, kindergartens, recreationists and athletes from Velenje and the surrounding area. A large part of the opening hours is filled with different swimming assessment programmes and courses. In addition to the schools in Velenje, courses are also offered to schools in Mozirje, Nazarje, Šoštanj, Šmartno ob Paki, Slovenj Gradec, Rečica ob Savinji, Dobrna, Prebold, Polzela…

The sauna ticket includes:

Swimming in the pool
For additional relaxation, you can enjoy swimming in both of the pools. The non-swimming pool has a temperature of 31℃. This pool also offers the possibility of a water jet massage. The water temperature in the large swimming pool is 27℃ and is suitable for cooling down and increasing physical activity.

Warm drinks
Complimentary tea in different flavours is available in the sauna area. On top of that, you will also be welcomed with a snack.

Salt scrub
The most important function of an exfoliation scrub is removing dead skin cells and preparing the skin for better absorption of other substances. The scrub is even more efficient in the combination with sauna, because the body is able to get rid of toxins more easily via sweating. Exfoliation also helps with circulation, which means that the body temperature can be regulated more easily. Consequently, the body cells can absorb more oxygen and food.
