Istanbul Turkish Bath Experience: Indulge in Relaxation and Tradition

Istanbul, the cultural capital of Turkey, is renowned for its traditional Turkish baths or hammams, which offer a unique and relaxing bathing experience. The Turkish bath experience typically begins with a sauna session, followed by a soak in a hot pool, and then a vigorous scrub with a kese, a rough mitt made of camel hair. 

 

Next, the bath attendant applies a rich lather of soap and massages the body with gentle, circular motions. After a final rinse, guests can relax in a cool room and sip on Turkish tea, feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. The experience is not only a chance to cleanse the body but also a glimpse into Turkey's rich cultural heritage and the centuries-old practice of communal bathing.
