Turkish Bath, called hamam in Turkish, which has been present in Turkey for thousands of years.   The tradition of the Turkish bath extends far back, to a time before Turks had reached Anatolia.   When the Turks arrived in Anatolia, they brought with them one bathing tradition, and were confronted with another, that of Romans and Byzantines, with certain local variants.   After pick you up from your hotel, we will take you to one of the traditional Hamams in Cappadocia, in Urgup, Nevsehir or Avanos which have historical buildings.   There is few main procedures during the bath. When you arrive, the staff will provide you a cubicle in which you take off your clothes and wear the loin cloth.   After changing, you will be taken to the Sicaklik (Hot Room) of the Turkish Bath in which help your muscles loosen up, you will go to the warm room of the bath, the staff (tellak for men and natir for women) will scrub you down using Turkish soap and a special cloth that gets out all your old skin blocking your pores.   Once you have finished, you will be taken to the Sogukluk (Cold Room) and give you towels to wrap yourself in.   Then you can pay for having a massage or you can just relax and order some tea or other drinks else.   At last, after you get dressed, you will feel your skin are renew like baby skin. That's the magic of Turkish bath.
