Swimming in the Netherlands
During the hot summer days, many people seek relief at the swimming pool, the many Dutch lakes, rivers or by the sea. It is important to be aware of the risks so that you can go swimming well prepared.
There is a lot of water in the Netherlands, so it is useful if you can swim. Besides being able to swim, for many children and adults it is also a social activity to go to beaches, rivers, swimming pools or lakes. It is therefore important for Ukrainian children to be able to swim, just like Dutch children.
Do you or your children not yet know how to swim, but would like to learn? Then take swimming lessons. That way you can become a good swimmer. Municipalities can often help pay for swimming lessons. Ask your municipality what the available schemes are. Do you want to become a good swimmer too? Take a look at the video by Juf NaTAALka about swimming in the Netherlands or check out our page Swimming in the Netherlands here you will find all the information about swimming lessons and swimming safety in the Netherlands.
