Top 10 swimming pools in Lyon!

Top 10 swimming pools in Lyon PLUS a small BONUS

I could not think of a better time to write about the top swimming pools in Lyon. Why? Because it is not only extremely hot in the city each summer and they are recommended to be visited during that time. But also swimming pools are good to visit at any time of the year. People of Lyon love swimming pools as they are very sportive people. I have never seen so many people running, using bikes every day, spending their lunch breaks in the gyms and swimming pools. I should actually take an example but the sport is not my thing. I tend to say I like walking so I walk a lot through the city and I am loving it. Anyways, let me present you my list of top 10 swimming pools in Lyon and where to find them.

Jadorelyon is my way of exploring France, the French way of life, their cuisine, sharing the experience from visiting beautiful places in France. Jadorelyon is my new way of adding some Polish influence into French lives and watching on how they like it...
