Home Yeni hammam

Yeni hammam (New hammam) is the pearl of the oriental architecture in Bitola. Housed in the former Wooden Market, it is assumed that this hammam dates back to the 17th century.

The hammams (Turkish baths) had an important role in cultures in the Balkans as places for social communication and their creators were quite good and famous architects. These were places where different ethnicities from Bitola were hanging out, entertained and completely relaxed taking care of their personal hygiene and health.
Yeni hammam was functional until the first half of the 20th century.
Today, part of the building and its interior are completely destroyed and exposed to permanent decay.
