The first time I went to Romania we took a group of teenagers to a public pool in a rural town that was about a two-hour drive away from where they lived. There were very nice views of the mountains surrounding the area, as you can see in some of the pictures below.
But perhaps the strangest thing about this pool was that it was literally water from the pond next to the pool. You couldn’t see the bottom of the pool, simply because it was murky pond water.
Despite the fact that it didn’t seem as sanitary as a typical public pool in America (but then again, how many pools are actually sanitary?), we still had a great time with the teenagers there!
