Yestrday was exploring day for me. We try traditional turkish bath. First you enter the hamam and spend 30 minutes in hot room, where you relax and loosen up for a while, and most importantly sweat! Place was impressive ,completely covered in marble featuring a big dome, and an impressive göbektaşı — the central, raised platform above the heating source.
After that, the maseur invite you to other room , wash you with warm water and then scrubed with kese (special bath glove). Maseur was small, but strong turkish lady. It is impressive how much dirt comes off from your body. After not so gentle part you enjoy foam bath,☁ and more washing with warm and cold water. Your skin is so soft, fresh and healty glowing after those procedure.✨
For full happiness next thing is oil massage , where you are completly naked. In first minutes its seems strange, but after it feels so natural and more easy. 20 minutes of massage which you cant call gentle as well, you feel your body gets so calm. Then time for face mask and free time with turkish apple tea, some turkish music and slow conversation with girls.
I was excpecting some spa kind of thing , but in the end it get that raw, natural ,old turkish style bath and hammam. And i cant be more happier for that feelings and expierence i get from this evening.
