During excavations in India, archaeologists found a bath, whose age exceeded the mark of 5 thousands of years, and found during excavations of the palace of Kronos baths on the island of Crete, It is estimated to the III century BC. Удивительно, but they were made of pottery, very similar to the modern counterparts. The first metal (made of bronze) baths were found during excavations in Pompeii. also known, that for the richest citizens of Greece and Rome were made to order, even silver and gold baths and pools.
There is another very interesting historical fact. Так, например, in the sacred Hindu books, written about 2 thousand years ago, common phrase: "Water - a healing stream, it cools the heat of fever and successfully treat any disease ". This indicates that, people are not always treated equally to take bath. For example, Spartans did not take a bath. They wash only in cold water, and therefore preferred to open reservoirs for vydnyh procedures, because they were afraid to run into your body and soul the sin of pleasure, which carried warm water.
you must say, that this water is truly a religion flourished in ancient Rome. historically known, bathrooms that were present in many homes. Plus functioning public baths – thermae. by the way, Another very interesting fact – the word "sauna" comes from the Latin "Balneum", which translates as "chase the pain". In Rome, these baths were about 1000! They were built by order of the emperors, and thus their names. For example, Karkalla Emperor terms were particularly popular and were almost ideal. It should be noted, that each term can successfully hold up 2300 people per session. It was all done for the maximum comfort: Pools were cold, and hot water, Special rooms with private baths, massages and steam baths. you must say, people walking in terms not just wash off the dirt, but also for the rest: talk, listen to interesting lectures of philosophers, etc.. In a term created by membership clubs, composed which was very prestigious.
Unfortunately, after the fall of the Roman Empire, in the Middle Ages, people rarely washed. This is not surprising, because at that time it has become a luxury bath, and not everyone can afford to buy it, and even very wealthy citizens often could only take a bath for rent, which is transported from house to house. To conserve the hot water is usually several people take water treatments simultaneously.
It should be noted, the first baths in Europe, made of metal, It appeared in the XVII century thanks to the Frenchman Level, and come up with even column, which is used to heat water. But the bath still remained a luxury item, only the end of XVIII century the baths were in the homes of many ordinary people. In England in the reign of Queen Victoria's era, created the first sitz baths, made of metal. Polished brass models beautifully decorated with rich wood. Most often they are installed next to the fireplace in the bedroom. In Russia during the reign of Peter I appeared baths, which could use only the rich people. Therefore, by analogy with the Middle Ages are often transferred bath for rent.
But it was the story. Empowerment leads to an increase in demand for modern bathrooms. Now a huge market abundance offers almost unlimited freedom of choice of design and technological solutions for the bathroom. Modern bathroom should not only act as your body's health site, but also an ideal place, where the soul gets a chance to rest, where you can be alone with yourself and retire, as well as recuperate and regain the coveted harmony.
