Hamam takes a very important place in Turkish culture. One of the most famous hamams in Istanbul is, no doubt, the Çemberlitaş. To be honest, the entrance fee is a little expensive; around €10. The most important thing in hamam is having a rub with a coarse bath-glove made by a strong person called "Tellak". I have to admit that it is not a massage but a harsh cleaning session! The tellak works as a cleaner but a little strongly, so if you are too sensitive don't do it! Tellak costs another €10.
