Construction of an underwater hotel–the first of its kind–is scheduled to begin this year in Gdynia, Poland.
A newsletter from the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency states that “the building was designed among others with the aim of places where you can watch the coral reefs.”
“The hotel designed by engineers from Gdańsk will be based on two discs: underwater, submerged to a depth of approximately 10 meters in which is located about 20 rooms and twin disc, which is located above the water.”
The design of the hotel will allow it to be transported to different locations, depending on environmental or economic conditions. Although little is mentioned about the hotel’s environmental impact, it will offer diving courses, including a cave a wreck diver training facility.
