Once the capital of the Roman Empire, Turkey adopted Roman bath culture and the hammam was born. Today, the public hammam is still a major part of the culture. In traditional hammams, female and male sections are separate. However, the bathing rituals are the same: body scrubbing, a foamy wash, and a massage.
Made in Istanbul, Turkey
Alphonse de Lamartine wrote, “If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.” Istanbul, once known as Constantinople, is the only city in the world to straddle two continents: Europe and Asia. Over the last 2000 years, it has also been the capital of three empires: Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman. Divided by the Bosphorus Strait, today Istanbul is home to over 15 million residents. Istanbul is a study of contrast: ancient and modern; conservative and progressive; chaotic and relaxed. With a rich history and warm culture, it is one of the most inspiring cities in the world.
