We find interesting line of the bath at many well-known writers.
«Hey, you figure! - cried the fat, белотелый Lord, seeing in the fog tall and skinny man with a beard and with a large copper cross on his chest. - Поддай couple!
I, your honor, not банщик, and the Barber. It's not my business a couple of поддавать. Would you кровососные jars place?»
So begins the story And. P. Chekhov «In the bath», first published in 1885, in the magazine «Fragments». Later the writer had put the story in the collection of works. In this юмореске is the character of Nicodemus Егорыч Потычкин. And Потычкин ascends in the steam room at the top shelf: «Nicodemus Егорыч was a goal, like every naked man, but at the top of his bald head was a cap».
A curious detail. Today's lovers of steam, as it is known, wearing a ski cap or old felt hat. And this is, so to say, a scientific rationale: to avoid a rush of blood to the head.

In recent years among scientists - historians and doctors conducted a lively debate around very curious лечебника. The fate of this medieval medical treatise up to the end is not studied. There exist a few versions as to who was the author of a very instructive works. We will not go into disputes and historians will tell only one of the versions about the origin of the ancient medical books.
At the end of the XIX century in the library of Lorenzo de ' Medici in Florence was found most interesting лечебник under the name of «Ointment» («Alim»). Someone suggests that its written in the XII century Eupraxia was the granddaughter of the Kyiv Prince Vladimir Monomakh. Even as a child Eupraxia showed great interest in folk medicine, collecting herbs and healed the sick, for which its people have nicknamed Добродеей. The fate of the Evpraksia has developed so, that she was obliged to marry the Byzantine Tsarevich Alexis Comnenus and here, in Jerusalem, was given a new name - Zoe Princess still fond of medicine, studied the works of Hippocrates and Galen, wrote his wonderful лечебник, which is highly appreciated modern her doctors. In the «Salve» a lot of interesting things about the treatment of «external and internal diseases». It is curious, that the wounds were asked to treat «leaven», in which, as determined by the current medicine, included vitamins. Zoe-Eupraxia writes about the «teeth as white to do.» Many pages are devoted to health, which proved good bath, which is «very protects the health and strengthens the body».
