Another feature is the unique rock landscapes and biodiversity.

Area – more than 820 hectares. Black Mountain itself is a unique natural phenomenon with an absolute plain at an altitude of 560 meters. It is believed that its origin is due to the eruption of the volcano more than a thousand years ago. Here is the Valley of Daffodils.

This is only a small part of what is possible! Be sure to visit the high and picturesque Shipit waterfall, the mountain eye – Lake Synevyr, the world-famous souvenir market Yaremche, the unique rocks of Dovbush, the colorful Valley of Daffodils, the only one of its kind.

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.

 

Turkish hammam – benefits and contraindications

 

Among the useful properties of the Turkish hammam are the following:

  • Soft, gradual and deep warming of the body, relaxation and toning, improvement of regeneration;
  • Restoring of the body after injuries, increased overburdening;
  • Eliminating of muscle tension;
  • Withdrawal of lactic acid;

Like other baths, hammam has a number of contraindications. First of all, it is the acute inflammatory processes of any group. Also, you should not be overheated in the case of pregnancy. One more reason to refuse even from a soft steam room is any disturbance of the cardiovascular system and severe diseases of the respiratory system such as asthma or tuberculosis.
