Sauna in the Baltics
Sauna is one of the most popular activities in the countryside of the Baltics – it improves one’s feeling of wellness: recharges the batteries, stabilizes blood circulation, improves metabolism, facilitates skin cleansing as well as alleviates stress. There are four types of saunas in the Baltic countryside:
  • The wet sauna is the most common – here, water is poured on heated stones and people thrash each other using whisks made of various grasses or twigs. The temperature in this type of sauna is 60-80 degrees C.
  • The dry sauna which is heated by electricity with the temperature being capable of reaching 100 degrees C.
  • The steam sauna in which steam at 70 degrees C is injected.
  • The smoke or black sauna which is the oldest type of sauna in the Baltics – it is without a chimney and the smoke from the fire inside is allowed to escape through the sauna window. Most of the black saunas can be found in Latgale – the South-Eastern region of Latvia.
