Back to ideas

 

Our objective is to qualitatively present Lithuanian (Baltic) bath and its procedures to tourists visiting Lithuania. We would like to introduce our guests to the history of Lithuanian bath, its peculiarities and traditions. Guests will be shown the process of preparation, they‘ll learn how to make besoms out of different trees and plants and we‘ll explain their purposes. The guests can be presented with different kinds of Lithuanian baths – black or smoke, white, most archaic underground steam bath and baths of different Lithuanian ethnic regions.
 
The Use of Steam Bath
Steam bath is the best way to get rid of toxins, rejuvenate skin, clean skin pores, relax nervous system and to get back good mood. Contrastic procedures in a steam bath give possibility to train skin bloodvessels: they expand in hot and contract in cold. This way the organism gets strengthened. One leaves the day‘s misery and soul‘s dregs.
