The sauna has always been a part of everyday life of the Finns, as necessary as food and drink. A Finn gets his health from the sauna on good days, and he looks to the sauna for help on bad ones. Thus, sauna has become an institution, combining cleansing, relaxing and recreational aspects. The book tells about the Finnish sauna: Its history, tradition and the Finns' bathing manners and ceremonies. Along the way you get many useful tips, if you are going to have a sauna bath or planning to build a sauna of your own. Besides that, there are also several tales of Finnish sauna and the bathers.
