Duna Arena is much more than a competition pool, by this development the greatest aquatics centre of Hungary will be established providing sporting and entertainment facilities for thousands of people after the Championships, also. The facility will serve as a training pool for kids and will function as headquarters for training for the national swimming and water polo community. In addition, the facility will host dozens of national and international events.

A jewel in the crown of Budapest


Duna Arena is comprised of two facilities: a main building with a capacity of hosting 6000 persons and a temporary facility designated for the 2017 FINA World Championships with temporary grandstands and service units.

The main building was designed so that it would remain a jewel in the crown of Budapest after temporary facilities are eliminated.

It is important to note that constructions have been delivered in line with environmentally conscious and sustainable considerations, the majority temporary elements will be used at other venues after the event.

The fundamental purpose when designing the facility was to ensure that the facility in legacy mode would meet the requirements of the Hungarian Swimming, Water Polo, Synchronised Swimming and Diving Federations.

After the World Championships


Naturally, it is our goal to integrate these functions to the daily life of the Dagály Beach; which will make it possible for the guests of the Dagály Beach and the Duna Swimming Complex to use both facilities together.
