the deeper, the better..
Jan 27, 2003
as the Slovakia is an inland country we can dive only in lakes. There are some nice places near our capitol Bratislava, so we dive there. Visibility in shallow lake "Gulaska" (10-14m) is often 10m and more, it is very good, many divers even from neighbouring Czech Republic come dive here because of good visibility and rich uw life.

Our favourite place is lake called Velke Ulany about 50km from the city. Max depth. cca 35m, good for freediving trainings, visibility in depth is much better than on shallow water ...it is about 3-10m.... it is still good for freediving.

Closest lake Velke Kosariska has "muddy" water, it is like a milk :) ..cannot see nothing, even end of your arm disappears of your sight :).....it takes only first 10 depth meters, at depth 30m/90ft the visibility is 3-5m... for freediving around the rope it is good...

The bottom temperatures in lakes are about 7-10°C ..pretty cold, it is impossible to train deep static here :)

Closest sea is Adriatic Sea in Croatia, 600km from here :(
Visibility is very good, also the temperature.

Hi Maros,
Great to see some other Slovakians on this forum. I suggest your idea was to introduce our beloved country to deeper... members.
Good work! Hope to dive with ya soon.
