Resurrected splendor: 16th-century Turkish baths reopen in Istanbul as part-antique spa, part-museum

In a triumphant revival, the Zeyrek Çinili Hamam, a 16th-century Turkish bath in Istanbul, has emerged from a 13-year restoration project. This enchanting historical treasure, once buried under layers of neglect, now stands proudly restored to its former glory.
