In a summer where the majority of people will be going on holiday within their own country's borders, some for the first time in years, this infographic compares bathing water quality across Europe. While UK holidaymakers may be used to taking a dip in Spain where 88.4 percent of the water is certified as "excellent" quality by the European Environment Agency, standards may need to be lowered back home where the figure is only 66.1 percent.
That said, 22.7 percent as classified as "good", and 8.2 percent are deemed "suffucient". Onyl 2 percent are "poor". Although it doesn't look good for Poland, 69.1 percent of the country's bathing waters have not received a classification. Looking at the remaining shares, 21.6 percent were "excellent", 6.1 percent "good", 2.8 percent "sufficient" and less than one percent were "poor".
