Szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu reports that the building of the Dagály swimming arena has already begun. The arena in Budapest will be the main location for the Championships, and is planned to be the most significant sports and wellness centre of Hungary, available for thousands of visitors after the Champs.
The 2017 Swimming World Championships are to be held in Budapest and Balatonfüred, Hungary, 14-30 July, according to Wikipedia. Originally, the event was supposed to be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, but after their withdrawal in February 2015, Hungary took over the organization tasks.
Balatonfüred will host the open-water swim race, whereas the audience can watch the other competitions of the swimmers in Budapest, as the super high diving, diving, swimming and synchronised swimming will take place in the Dagály swimming arena. Furthermore, the water polo matches are going to be held in the Komjádi Béla Sports Swimming Pool also in the capital city.
