Someone diving from 10m at the coolest and most retro public outdoor swimming bath I know: Frognerbadet.
It's inside the famous sculpture park in Oslo, Frognerparken also called Vigelandsparken (after the artist Vigeland). The park has outdoor swimming pools, lots of green piknik area, trees, icecream and fast food, volleyball, concerts at nighttime ( Norwegian Wood music festival in June), underwater windows and a water slide. It was first opened in 1956, and has kept the retro look.
worthwhile a visit! It's just a nostalgic place, and I'm very weak for anything nostalgic/romantic.Places like Frognerbadet gives me memories of a happy childhood.
