This place is an old Hammam that shows how people used it. They have decorated the place with mannequins that gives you a very good grasp on how the atmosphere was. There are some recorded voices aired in the bath that makes the experience realistic.

Vakil Bath is located in the central part of Shiraz and can be reached from the Vakil bazaar. It has been turned into a museum and gives a great overview on how it was to be washed and cleaned about a century ago in Iran.

Kind of funny with wax statues all around the bath. Nice place to learn about Persian habbits from that time of dark agens in Europe.

I visited during the Nowruz holidays and each day the queue for this place was just huge, with no separate queue for foreigners (even though you're paying 7x the price). As such I missed out on seeing the interior. From the outside it doesn't look...More

Guess it's a good insight to an Persian bathhouse but it's way too expensive. I only spent 20 mins in it and I saw everything. For comparison, I spend half a day at Persepolis and the ticket for that was the same price as this...More
