WHAT IT IS?
‘Nemo 33’, Brussels, Belgium is an Aquatic Centre built for divers. It has the deepest swimming pool in the world with a depth of 113 feet (33 meters). Its latest addition: restaurant ‘The Pearl’ opened in 2017. It is an underwater pod converted into a restaurant. The pod is 16 feet (5 meters) below surface level, so you have to dive for your dinner. The experience starts with a glass of champagne which is being delivered inside a sealed waterproof box. For this unique dining experience, divers must bring their scuba diving certificate, swimwear, and other essentials. Divers get the chance to freely explore the pool and enter the underwater pod once their table is ready. For beginner divers, there is an hour diving course available before dining.
