Companies often rent premises with a steam room for corporate events so that they can relax in it after the official part. Sometimes business negotiations are held in the bath, although now this tradition is less common than two decades ago.
Public baths are also popular. Contrary to popular belief, women and men visit them on different days, and not at the same time. Finns often say, “If you are in a bad mood and the sauna didn’t help, nothing will help.” And they can also calmly apologize and leave the meeting, motivating their action by the fact that they are late for the sauna. This is considered a very good reason.
