"Splish Splash, I was takin' a bath
Long about a Saturday night.
A rub-a-dub, just relaxin' in the tub
Thinkin' everything was alright.
Well, I stepped out the tub, put my feet on the floor,
I wrapped the towel around me and I
Opened the door, and then I
Splish, splash... I jumped back in the bath.
Well, how was I to know there was a party going on?"
- "Splish Splash," song by Bobby Darin

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, "the bath as an institution has a long history." From the Bible to ancient Egyptian architecture, you can find evidence of baths and dedicated bathrooms.

In ancient Rome, the baths were more akin to spas, containing not only areas for washing but also for steam treatments and massage. From ancient to medieval times, most baths were public institutes rather than private rooms.

In the past, many baths were large pools feed by natural springs. Many were thought to have healing properties, and people suffering from arthritis or other ailments would travel from afar to soak in them.

Plumbing for private bathing has been uncovered in ancient European palaces.
