As I told you in one of the latest posts, the Bath or Turkish bath, is a part of the turkish culture. In every town or city we will find buildings for this use. The same is true in most of the best hotels.
I've gone to a some of them and certainly those that more attract my attention are genuine ones., more traditional. As it is impossible to me to know all of them, I've been gathering information about which they are most appreciated by Turks. According to various media in the country some lists of the nation's best have been published. So I have prepared a selection of 10 best hamam in Turkey, in this post I will talk about 5 them.
