Full description

The Turkish bath is a long revered custom, centuries old; perfect for those looking for a truly physical and spiritual cleansing experience.

Historical Vezneciler Turkish Bath was awarded with a certificate of excellence in 2018 by TripAdvisor. Ottoman Ruler Sultan Bayezid II had it built in the year 1481.

The classic hamam ritual usually takes about 60 minutes.

Prepare to leave the chaos and humdrum of life behind as soon as you enter the Turkish bath. Immerse yourself and embrace traditional custom by wearing the waistcloth and clogs provided.

Not quite for the faint hearted, inside the temperature can reach up to 50 degrees celcius under the central dome of the building.

The combined intense heat and humidity encourages the pores to open and impurities to be extracted from the body.

Following which, your skin will be gently exfoliated with a Turkish scrub and you will receive a soothing soap massage.

Finally, after resting, you can enjoy Turkish tea before being taken back to your hotel feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed.

About Historical Vezneciler Hamami

Historical Vezneciler Turkish Bath is located in the district of Fatih, on Bozdogan Kemeri Road. Ottoman Ruler Sultan Beyazid II had it built in the year 1481. Being the first and only Bath built in the second floor, Vezneciler Turkish Bath is unique both in the world and Turkiye. The curative water that heals the illness of jaundice is one another feature of this bath.

This bath which hosted many important statesmen and pashas was renovated in 1950 by rebuilding the section of changing rooms out of reinforced concrete. Although Evliya Celebi mentioned Vezneciler Bath being a “double bath” (seperate entrances for both sexes), this feature of the bath cannot be seen today. Vezneciler Turkish Bath is still in service today is a private property.
