If you think that bathhouses only belong in the past, well, you're wrong. Public bathhouses are still well-loved. Bathhouses are there in various countries for people to have fun and relieve them of their pain and blood circulation problems.

Here are five of the most beautiful bathhouses in the country to prove you wrong.

Tokyo Somei Onsen Sakura. Probably one of the most famous countries to have continued in upholding public baths, Japan's bathhouses offers a more less-urban swimming experience. People visit the Tokyo Somei Onsen Sakura because the area is full of beautiful Somei-Yoshino cherry trees which make it more relaxing to look when taking a nice hot spring bath. The waters are rich in sodium chloride and other minerals to help wear travelers alleviate their sore joints. Best to go here in spring when the flowers are in bloom!

Yrjönkatu Swimming Hall, Finland. It's the first and oldest public indoor swimming hall in the country which has a sauna and a café inside. Before, people can swim naked, but now, it's the 21st century and mind you, no one's going to swim with a naked person in the pool. It's often called as one of the most beautiful bathhouses in the world due to its interior designs. Pillars, color tone, and grills send a chic, classicism look over its halls. Simple yet beautiful, lights hanging from the ceiling matches the overall vibe of the swimming hall.

Gellert Baths and Spa Budapest. Highly reminiscent of ancient roman bathhouses, it prides itself of its healing waters that come from 118 natural thermal springs which the Knights of St John also used during the 12th century. The bathhouse has an intricate floor and column design patterns which simply shouts "Art Nouveau." By the way, it'll be celebrating its 100th anniversary next year!

7132 Thermal Baths & Spa, Vals, Switzerland. A very modern, minimalistic bathhouse, the Thermal baths in Switzerland was made from 60,000 slabs of Vals quartzite and uses dark and light-themed areas as a mode for relaxation. According to Aol, it has tons of amenities including indoor and outdoor pools, massage and relaxation rooms, plus a fire pool, ice pool, and flower pool.

Giardini Poseidon, Ischia, Italy. Thermal springs from a nearby volcano fuelled up the warm waters of Poseidon. It offers modern amenities like a pool, rehabilitation centers, wellness and medical spa, and establishments that provide food and wine. It's almost like a resort fused with ancient bathhouse feel with their healing waters.

Here, you can also view other beautiful public baths and saunas.
