  • Slovakia
Audio Tracks 

In 1942, a swimming pool was constructed under the Bratislava castle rock, however, it was never really used. Why was the pool never set in operation? Where did its water go? A mystery? We have decided to solve the question of this deteriorating place in Bratislava in the form of a pseudodocumentary film. We have made the whole story up on the basis of historical facts.
