The Bath is a unique district of the Roman civilization in Civilization VI. It replaces the Aqueduct district and must be built adjacent to both the City Center and a River, Lake, Oasis, or Mountain.

  • Effects:
    • Lower Civ6Production Production cost (18 vs. 36).
    • Provides the city with a source of fresh water from an adjacent River, Lake, Oasis, or Mountain.
    • Cities that do not yet have existing fresh water receive up to 6 Housing6 Housing.
    • Cities that already have existing fresh water will instead get +2 Housing6 Housing.
    • Provides an additional bonus of +2 Housing6 Housing and +1 Amenities6 Amenity in either case.
    • GS-Only Prevents Civ6Food Food loss during droughts.
    • GS-Only +1 Amenities6 Amenity if adjacent to a Geothermal Fissure.
    • Does not depend on Citizen6 Population.


The extra 2 Housing6 Housing, 1 Amenities6 Amenity and lower Civ6Production Production cost provide a great advantage to grow larger cities before the Sewer and Neighborhood are available. That means Roman cities with a Bath can support 2 more Citizen6 Citizens than those of other civs with an Aqueduct. It's wise to found cities near sources of fresh water and build the Bath when it becomes available, or at least place it soon to avoid the increase to Civ6Production Production cost over time. When combined with Rome's and Trajan's unique abilities and the Legion, the Bath allows the Romans to claim more territory and build larger cities more quickly and safely than other civs.

Civilopedia entryEdit

In old Rome, the thermae were large bath complexes; while many Roman villas and palaces had private, heated baths, the thermae were public, open to all harried, dirty citizens who needed to relax and get clean. Although layout varied greatly from Roman city to Roman city, in general each had an atrium for relaxation and exercise, a caldarium (hot bath), a tepidarium (warm bath), a frigidarium (cool bath), as well as apodyterium (dressing room) and the like. The really nice ones also had a sudatorium (moist steam bath) and laconium (dry steam bath). The women's baths were almost as elaborate, and more highly decorated with murals and mosaics. After a long day at the Colosseum watching the slaughter, there must have been nothing as luxurious as a visit to the local thermae.
