Experience the bathing ceremonies of the ancient Ottoman sultans in this magnificent Turkish bath in Istanbul.
Istanbul is famous for its Asian influence, which is a city where European culture is welcomed. As a result, traditions are unique to Turkey and rarely found elsewhere in the world; this concept is no more valid than the city’s ancient baths. Once there were 237 baths in Istanbul, today 60’s are still in use. Traditionally, Turkish baths followed a three-stage process, a sauna and steam bath, and then washed a full body; often completed with a massage.
Today in Istanbul, the bathing process has been adapted and developed to include various spa treatments combined with hours spent with steam and sauna-ing. We have tried the best luxurious baths in the city and we chose you the best … And relax.
