Duna Aréna

New water sports cathedral for the best of the world

Major sporting events such as Olympic Games or world championships are fascinating people all around the globe. This also applies to the 17th Swimming World Championships (WC), which are organized by the FINA (Fédération Internationale de Natation, CH-Lausanne) and take place in the second half of July 2017 in the Hungarian capital Budapest. This location is predestined in so far as Hungary is well-known and famous for first-class thermal baths and a high bathing culture. The close relation to the basic element of water is also reflected in the fact that this country frequently comes up with top performances in swimming, and even the first Olympic champion of the modern age, Alfréd Hajós, was a Hungarian. Accordingly great is the significance of this year’s swimming WC. The Duna Aréna (Engl. “Danube Arena“) as main competition site is impressive because of its Special position, striking architecture and pools in a class of their own. Ceramic tiles “Made in Germany” of the brand AGROB BUCHTAL play a central part in this connection.
