Description & Details
Interior area of the public bath
The history of the bath goes back to the 19th century, when Franz Frühbeck Senior built the first steam bath in Sibiu. In 1886 Johann Habermann bought the bath complex and renovated the building fundamentally and extended it in some places until it shone in its present form. Since both buildings were designed by the architect Karl Hocheder, the public bath Sibiu is very similar to the Müller'schen Volksbad in Munich.
Today the public bath Sibiu has only one pool in the interior, but in this you are offered a lot. Especially the offer of the water gymnastics is a flagship of the public bath, because here you can choose from a large offer. The clear advantage of this sport is the fact that you don't just train a few body regions, but have to use all your muscles in the water. The combination of high physical exertion and the relaxing effect of the water make the water gymnastics courses a perfect offer of the public bath, which is used by almost all visitors. Since the so-called Aqua Gym can be practiced regardless of age and physical condition, the bath here has several courses that will noticeably promote your health. In addition, there are also various swimming courses where young and old can learn to swim or simply train their skills.
