The culture of Turkish Bath goes back to the period of Ancient Rome. You can visit many historical hamams –known as Turkish Baths- that are very historical and different. However, regardless of its style, you can feel the history of Ottoman in almost every hamam. It is known that these historical baths were built by the Sultans of that time.
