WHAT IS HAMMAM

Street Asomaton Melidoni 1 & 17, Thissio created the hammam baths, a simple but modern space with respect to the tradition of traditional baths to convey an authentic hammam experience in our country, to share the refreshing feeling that we felt, to propagate or better to restore the culture and everyday life, which was an integral part of centuries ago.

We chose the center of Athens because this fits such a place in every respect. Near the “Bathroom of the Winds” that survives in the Plaka, and the center of developments in our city. In the liveliest spot, here is happening all the new and interesting facts.

In the hammam baths we convey the atmosphere and magic of oriental bath, with its imposing dome, round marble bench in the center and individual bowls around in the warm, while all rooms are designed with respect for tradition and adapted to modern life.

Escape from everyday life, enjoy the thermal properties of steam, enjoy a deep exfoliation and a soothing massage. Relax with your tea … and keep your day or evening in downtown Athens. Refresh yourself by visiting the hammam baths lifestyle!

HISTORY

The hammam has its roots in ancient Greek and Roman times. One habit that charmed and spread in many cultures of the Mediterranean basin over time. It focuses on the element of water, and beauty, wellness, balance the physical and mental health – which were elements of the philosophy of the baths in all cultures – remain central to the process.

The visit to the hammam is an escape from everyday life. A moment of calm, a process that can become a “deep” experience. It is a pleasant “output”, an impressive spectacle, entertainment, a change of scenery, and relax in the full sense of the word.

CAFE OF THE EAST

The privacy of the space does not negate the sociability and the bathrooms were always part of everyday life. The social world of steam and was characterized by celebrations as it was a world of abundance, delightful “luxury” and tradition. The space used to commemorate important events that often characterized the transition between periods and important moments in life.

A bride, for example, visiting the bath before and after the wedding ceremony marking the entrance to the institution of marriage. In other words, the steam being transformed in the scene where conduced public festivities and participated in the community.
