Turkiška pirtis

The history of Turkish bath dates to very distant times, when the Turks had not reached Antalya yet. Arriving to Antalya they brought the ancient traditions, but also faced with another tradition – the Romanian and Byzantine. The mixture of these two traditions has given birth to a new concept of Turkish bath. At first the bath was heated with warm air from the underneath. The air was transported through special pipes, which were hidden under a marble bath floor. The Turkish bath has been heated by a huge boiler, installed in the wall. This boiler was a steam producer. The water was boiling in the boiler and the steam entered a bath through a large hole, located approximately 1.5 meters in height. Modern technology and equipment allow to simplify this technical device. Now Turkish baths contain the high quality flashing (two-layer), the double heating system with water or electricity, hidden in reinforced concrete structures. The classical ceiling – a dome-shaped, for the draining of the resulting condensate, at the bottom of the dome is held the drainage. High humidity inside the bath is achieved with a steam generator; the fragrances are generated by a fragrance dispenser. The lighting is supplied by a heat-resistant, moisture protected bulbs (a starry sky effect). Ventilation and sewerage systems are mandatory. The internal design can be various: European – mosaic, decorative tiles, neon lighting, Classic – marble, columns, pilasters, mosaic chairs, bowls for washing up, fountains.
