Bathing during the Romans was considered a sign of civilization, and for this reason almost every house had a bathroom. A.D. With the collapse of the Roman Empire in the 5th century, this good habit was largely absent from Europe. Even so, Queen Victoria in 1837, when she was in charge of the British Empire, did not have a bath in Buckingham Palace.

Until the 1870s, bathing was a burden for people. Some people would take a cold shower because of occasional healthiness. But the main reason for bathing in cold water was the difficulty of heating up enough water to make a bath on the kitchen stove. Moreover, there was the burden of transporting this heated water to the bathing place and discharging it with the help of a stone or another vehicle. The bathroom heaters made of painted galvanized metal were produced in two main types: half bath and bathroom with shower. In the shower, the water had to be pumped up through a hand pump. Because of this, people were having a lot of difficulty while they were soaped and had to pump water on the one hand. In half the baths, there were small bathtubs that were only allowed for people to sit on. So, these powers were called “hipbanks”.

Since the 1880s, long bathtubs and shower systems that we know today have been developed. Hot water was provided and the bathrooms were renewed. Turkish baths, however, began to be in demand from the beginning of the century. In these baths, first a steam bath was built and then cut off; The Europeans changed the process of interrogation a bit and called it “massage”.

The first examples of saunas we know today are from the 1890s into the houses under the name of Fin baths. Thanks to a stove placed in a closed box on each side, there was a great warmth in the box. The door of the box was opened from the outside, once inside it was closed again. The biggest drawback to this method was that the inside person was left alone with the destiny of the inside if the burning soul was in a dangerous state.
