Glossary

Also known as "Turkish bath" or "Oriental bath". Traditional hammams are traditionally segregated by gender: either separate rooms or times of use for women and men are different. In hotel complexes, it can usually be visited by men and women. On the walls are sinks with hot and cold water, with which you regularly pour over.
