    No one knows who invented it. It has been a rather common tradition for all Northern European groups. Scandinavians have mostly lost this tradition.

    Blog: http://terheninenmaa.blogspot.fi/, with essence "Believe me, or I'll nuke you".

    H39 - Thracia 1650 BC, Hungary 5000 BC
    I1 - Transdanubia 5000 BC

    Three simple facts about Finns:
    1. Baltic Finnic languages (including Finnish) never came from the Volga basin along with ancestors of present-day Finns.
    2. Finnish I1 (around 30% of all Finns) has Germanic roots from the late Bronze Age or the early Iron Age.
    3. As to the Finnish prehistory we have no evidences about any Iron Age (or later) east-to-west migration, but many unquestionable evidences about west-to-east migrations.

    The word 'sauna' comes from Finnish? In Russian - 'banya'. In Belarusian - 'laznya'.

    We have this tradition.
    It remains in Belarus, Ukraine, Russia. Take a look at @voron . He says he visits sauna 4-5 times a week.

    It's a good tradition. Swedes should be less self-hating and reintroduce it to its former popularity.

It is no more than the (...) resort of minds (...) that, for them, a revival of Stalinism is preferable to the pain of a glimpse of self-it's the last sigh of the beast that Nietzsche identified as ressentiment."

    We do, though I am not too found of sauna. But I sigh over these prude Americans who faint over the thought of being naked with other adults of the same sex.

    Muslim men have such taboo. Muslim women have less issues going naked among their peers of their gender curiously. So I've been told.

    I also used to have a Christian Canadian girl on my MSN. She told me they had a Belgian girl in gym who was 'liberal' and just went naked in the dressing room no problem. I told her we have no issue with it here when showering after gym or changing when we had swimming lessons every Wednesday. Her response: "But boys have no issue being naked among themselves."

    Similar prudity as that of muzzies, but opposite genders I'm also reminded of that Mr. Bean episode with that blind man. Very similar situation as with muslims. I goes it guess both genders with Anglos after all.

    Well, I am far from typical, though. I only go that often because it is in my gym. I doubt that many people go to public saunas often. Most have them at their dachas (country houses) and probably only do it on weekends.
    Btw, from what I understand, saunas are only beneficial if you go regularly, like several times a week. Going once a week or less does not make much of a difference in terms of benefits to your heart health or immune system.
