Sauna is an ancient Finnic bathhouse that was warmed up by burning wood under a pile of rocks until the rocks and the sauna interiors were warm enough so people could comfortably remove their clothes inside. Originally saunas didn’t have chimneys. Saunas were preheated prior to use and the smoke was let out before entering. Nowadays a traditional sauna like this is called savusauna or smoke sauna.
