The Swimming Pools Kantrida complex includes five swimming pools. Next to the old outdoor pool, which has been reconstructed, there are four more swimming pools. The Olympic pool 1 (an indoor swimming pool), a 25m swimming pool and a children’s pool were built in 2008, whereas a diving pool was completed in 2011. During the winter season, the Olympic pool 2 and the diving pool are covered by a dome, making it possible to use them throughout the whole year.

a special prize awarded by the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC)
the IPC Distinction awarded by the International Paralympics Committee (in 2009)
a special recognition for the Ploče Beach (in 2011 as a part of the initiative Blue Flower) and
