A Wonderful Water World


If the Bird’s Nest is a strong iron man, the Water Cube will be an exquisite lady. The Water Cube, also known as the Beijing National Aquatics Center, is the venue where swimming competitions held during the 2008 Olympics. Resembling a large pure ice cube, it was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green. Despite its nickname, the building is not an actual cube, but a cuboid (a rectangular box). After the 2008 Olympics, the building underwent a 200 million Yuan revamp to turn half of its interior into a water park. It will host the curling at the 2022 Winter Olympics. It measures 177 meters long, 177 meters wide, and 30 meters high and covers an area of 6.3 hectares. The floor below served as the service area during the Olympics. The first floor is for tourists. The auditorium is on the second floor with 6,000 fixed seats (2,000 of which are movable), and 11,000 temporary seats. The third floor is strictly for business.

The Water Drop Theater, SPA Zone, and the Water Cube Water Park open to public regularly.
