It's just a fancy swimmin' hole.

This is a popular swimming pool in the village of Dihovo, just a few kilometers from the city of Bitola. The water comes entirely from the mountains - they basically just divert a cool, clean river into a giant concrete tank, and then divert the runoff from the other end back into the river. The water is absolutely freezing, and it's my understanding that most people come just to sit at the cafe and stay cool near the water during the hot summer months.

Pretty neat, eh?
