"An ancient but truly fascinating structure, to some it may seem uncool but it has an ancient charm all its own. There is a small dry sauna and several shower areas, the central one is very beautiful. The owner and staff are very courteous and friendly. Unfortunately, the clientele is almost entirely over 60 and oversized and makes the experience a bit unpleasant. If you choose the right times and days you can see some tourists under 40. It is worth a visit at least for the structure"

It's a shame for the potential of our beautiful dancers. This queer scene definitely needs a more up-to-date DJ. What is Saturday night pavilion music?"
