C. Some Victorian Turkish baths abroad


In Europe, excepting the UK

Das Römisch-Irische Bad, Wiesbaden, GermanyThis table lists some of the Victorian-style Turkish baths in Europe, except for those separately listed in the countries comprising the UK.

Dates in maroon  are first and last sightings;
Plus or minus signs  indicate 'and later' or 'and earlier'.
