A traditional bath that has about 400 years ago. Human dolls and live songs in different sections are very amazing. Also, you can find Islamic arts and design there.

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.
