Saunas in Estonia are an institution-to some, a religion. If you've never taken a sauna, the idea of sitting in a room hotter than some ovens may seem indistinguishable from hell itself. This is deceiving. Most people who've ever ventured into one will attest that a sauna is a heavenly pleasure. You're as likely to come across a truly bad sauna in Estonia as you are to come across a truly bad pub in Ireland. It's possible, but odds are against it. Most hotels and health clubs have saunas. One public sauna is
