the Sauna Museum in 2011/2012.
The oldest type of sauna in Latvia – smoke or black sauna. In the sauna stove
under the stones, a campfire is lit, which ensures that the stones are charged
with the energy of live fire. There is no chimney and the smoke seeks every way
out through each gap, making everything black with soot along the way, which
disinfects and cleans everything. The air in the steam room is sterile.
