Artistic Swimming

You might know it as Synchronized Swimming, but in 2018 FINA changed the name to Artistic Swimming. Same sport, different name.

The artistic swimming tournament will take place at Øbro Hallen in Copenhagen. Øbro Hallen was the first public swimming pool in Denmark and contains a lot of history with its 90 years of existence. The venue was renovated back in 2002 but kept in the original neoclassicism design and architecture.

The venue contains a 25-meter swimming and diving pool. It is 1,3 to 4,9-meter-deep and has platform boards at heights of 1, 3, 5, and 10 meters. Øbro Hallen has a great relaxing wellness area, which you can use against payment. It contains a spa pool, roman steam bath, light room, infrared sauna and much more.

The diving tournament will as well take place at Øbro Hallen at the same day. Next to Øbro Hallen, you will find Østerbro Stadion where track & field competition and dodgeball tournament will take place. In the neighbourhood, you will find a large, public park called Fælledparken, lots of cafés, restaurants, and shopping options.
