Cappadocia Turkish Bath (Hammam)
In Western Europe, the Turkish bath as a method of cleansing the body and relaxation was particularly popular during the Victorian era. The process involved in taking a Turkish bath is similar to that of a sauna, but is more closely related to the ancient Roman bathing practices.
Turkish Bath, called hamam in Turkish, which has been present in Turkey for thousands of years. The tradition of the Turkish bath extends far back, to a time before Turks had reached Anatolia.
When the Turks arrived in Anatolia, they brought with them one bathing tradition, and were confronted with another, that of Romans and Byzantines, with certain local variants.
There is few main procedures during the bath. When you arrive, the staff will provide you a cubicle in which you take off your clothes and wear the loin cloth.
After changing, you will be taken to the Sicaklik (Hot Room) of the Turkish Bath in which help your muscles loosen up, you will go to the warm room of the bath, the staff (tellak for men and natir for women) will scrub you down using Turkish soap and a special cloth that gets out all your old skin blocking your pores.
Once you have finished, you will be taken to the Sogukluk (Cold Room) and give you towels to wrap yourself in.
Then you can pay for having a massage or you can just relax and order some tea or other drinks else.
At last, after you get dressed, you will feel your skin are renew like baby skin. That’s the magic of Turkish bath.
