Best pool in the region. An eight-lane 50m heated outdoor pool at the foot of the jagged Tien Shan mountains. An oasis of clear blue water and some peace in the heat of Central Asia's busiest city. Great for laps, sunbathing, watching the national teams train and local beauties parade. Bring flip flops and shower before swimming - the attendants are old Soviet sticklers for cleanliness.
On Abay Avenue next to the Central Stadium (bus stop 'Centralni Stadion'). tel Almaty 2924053.
