Turkish hammam – what is special about it?

Turkish hammam owes its appearance to earlier Roman salt thermae. The first known bath-house belonged to the rulers of the Arab Caliphate in the 660-750s. Such hammams were built in a wild desert only later becoming an inalienable attribute of urban life. They were constructed in a such way to make the heat generated by a boiler with boiling water penetrate inside the room through holes in the walls.

Hammams were built on a large scale as visiting them was considered a mandatory ritual. You could see bath-houses in almost every village.

On the territory of Europe the hammam appeared in the 19th century. Germany, England and America were the first that discovered the benefits of Turkish bath. In those days visits to the hammam were prescribed for the treatment of the fever, colds, cholera, bronchitis and asthma.


Specificity of the Turkish bath

To understand the specifics how the hammam works it is necessary to determine how it differs from other types of steam rooms. It is believed that the eastern bath-houses are the most soft and delicate ones. The temperature in hammam varies within 30-60 degrees with humidity up to 100%.

Such temperature mode allows you to stay in this Turkish bath for hours. Lack of sharp contrasts involves gradual warming up and later a gradual decrease of body temperature. The room temperature usually changes from wall to centre. This makes each guest free to choose the ideal conditions for him / her.

Traditional Turkish hammam is decorated with marble to provide even heating. Everything from floor to beds and walls is made of marble. The classic interior features rich decorations and oriental ornaments. A dome-shaped ceiling provides a smooth drain of condensation along the walls. Pools and waterfalls are rather used for raising moisture.
