Pictures Olympic diving swimming pool on Montjuic hill in Barcelona
The best city swimming pool view in the world is in Barcelona. The fabulous outdoor Olympic swimming pool, designed by Antoni de Moragas, was built in 1992 for the diving events of the Barcelona Olympics. It has a seating capacity of 4.100 spectators and the panoramic views of the city provide a unique backdrop for diving events. It is only open in July and August every year. The changing facilities are not in very good condition and the diving boards are closed to the public, but it's worth a visit just for the views. The spires in the background are the unfinished Sagrada Familia church by Antoni Gaudi.

Looks a bit like like synchronized swimming practise, but actually it was just a coincidence that this photo was taken as several pairs of girls were swimming.
