Saunas and Baths on Stamps

If you ever asked yourself whether there are or not sauna and baths stamps, well, the answer is going to be yes. With Finland as the main issuer of such stamps – but that’s not really a surprise for anyone, is it?

These stamps from Former Czechoslovakia present the baths of several known locations, such as Piešťany and Vyšné Ružbachy (nowadays in Slovakia); or Mariánské Lázně and Karlovy Vary (currently in the Czech Republic).

The first stamps of Finland depicting saunas were issued in 1949, in a series of Red Cross stamps. Their design is really appealing, with the 30+10mk value being probably the most astounding one.

Finland then returned to the topic of saunas with this single in 1999.

This is a 2009 issue of stamps again glorifying the health effects of saunas.
