The Cool Swim Meeting takes place in the beautiful setting of the Merano Lido. The facility, which dates back to 1930, is owned by the municipality of Merano and managed by Meranarena Srl. The Olympic-size pool, built in 2014, was designed to be one of the fastest pools in the world and is a flagship for the whole of South Tyrol.
