Cold rooms

In the cold room visitors are introduced to the bath. They are asked to change their clothes and to place them in special dressing rooms that are their convenient during the whole stay. In the dressing room visitors are allowed to leave their personal possessions. From the cold room, the guests receive detailed information about the experience in each room. They receive a towel – which they have to wear while being in the bath. As soon as they get their towels they are ready for their experience.

Warm rooms

The warm room is an inevitable part of your Turkish bath experience. In this room visitors have the chance to adapt their bodies to the temperature that awaits them in the hot room. Compared to the cold room where the temperature is moderate, in the warm room it is hotter because of regular steam flows. This is the room where you prepare yourself for the real experience. Visitors can stay in the warm room as long as they want and in the meanwhile, they are served with some traditional Turkish beverages.

Hot rooms

The temperature here is more than 50 C so if you have any health problems or think that you will not stand the heat, it will be better for you not to enter the hot room.
