My wife and I just returned from swimming pool heaven -- Iceland! Even the smallest village has a community pool, and there are signs on the streets directing you to the pool! You don't even need to know Icelandic to read the signs, because the signs show waves and a very happy swimmer. The pools are well heated, and there are hot tubs for those who like it warmer. Admission charges are moderate, and senior citizens get in free. What a nice way to do things.
