You think of Finland when you hear the word "sauna"?
And that’s right, because they are considered the world’s sauna nation par excellence. But did you know that it wasn’t the Scandinavians who invented communal sweating? In fact, it was the people of East Asia. They discovered the beneficial effects of heat more than 1,500 years ago. The Romans followed suit and regularly gathered in the sauna, where important business was discussed, among other things. Finally, people from Finland contributed significantly to the cultivation of the custom. The term “Finnish sauna” still reflects this fact today.
