Swim in the East: Itäkeskuksen Uimahalli

I visited the Itäkeskus swimming hall after many years of not being there. It is one of my favourite community swimming pools.

It was also one of the early ones to have a "spa" or "water park" like features.

But the main thing is that it is *underground*. It actually doubles as an emergency shelter. The underground, inside-the-rock setup gives you a very special feeling. The main 50-meter pool area is one huge cavern; and the round jacuzzi is in a dark dome cave, with some sparkly things in the dome to remind you of the night sky... very nice!
