The design of Tskaltubo is very specific as a spa town. The hotels are set in a circle surrounding the park with the spring water, which contains the bathhouses - both the grander ones and the public ones. I suspect Bathhouse No.5 was somewhere between the two. There are lots of communal areas and a few more private looking areas. It's been a long time since any of this was in full use though and it is in a sever state of disrepair. However, the green design with nature taking over is a beautiful thing to behold.
At one point we met 'laughing boy', He was an older gent who didn't understand anything we said but roared with laughter at each sentence. He was easily pleased & I rather liked him.
