Sauna culture in the Balkans
Finland Schottt 
We booked our trip to Croatia and the hotel has a spa with saunas, a steamroom and a pool. I couldn’t find any additional info about the spa so I have to ask my question here: are the saunas usually nude or do wear a vathing suot or towel?

Swimming centres and gyms for example. Sometimes you start your day by going the gym in the morning and thus wanting to take a shower afterwards. Because of logistics going home is not always possible. This very much sounds like a you issue and I hope you work it out.

Most developed countries have gender separated public showers at gyms and swimming centers. At swimming centres you do have some private showering booths but they're mostly used by elderly and/or disabled people. Public showers are way more cost efficient, and are considered fine since most of the population are not as neurotic as you are.

Its more relaxing to be in a sauna without clothing. Your towel gets soaked from sweat if you use it. Usually saunas have very dim lightning so you dont need to feel like you're on a spotlight.

Honestly depends a lot on the sauna. My family got a small sauna and a good temperature there is Imo about 60-65C but some big public saunas the 90-100C is pretty good. Idk maybe the humidity is more in a small sauna which makes the temperature feel higher or something

Yeah I hate how people talk about the sauna temperatures even though the same temperature can feel a lot different in other saunas. Also the actual temperature that hits you depends on how close you sit to the heater and how high u are actually sitting. In our sauna good temperature is like 65-75 and there would be no way of somebody enjoy +100°C.
