Istanbul · Saunas & Hamams

Istanbul has a huge sauna culture, with many Hamams frequented by gay men. Due to the laws against public exhibitionism, we only list conventional places.

There is also a section on gay-popular gyms & spas.

male saunas & hamams

Equivalent to the Western sauna, the Turkish bath or ‘hamam’ plays an important role in the Middle Eastern culture, serving as places of social gathering, ritual cleansing and architectural institutions.

Whilst these hamams are not gay venues, they are recommended to those who want to experience the history and tradition of the Turkish bath.

Historical Turkish bath originally built in 1841. Tahiri Galatasaray Hamam was once a men-only venue but now has a section for female clients. Classic Turkish interiors with marble, tile work, etc.

There are some semi-private rooms. Massage service available.
