The first hookah (water pipe, shisha, nargile, hubble-bubble) appeared in India in the primitive form of a coconut shell at least 500 years ago and soon spread to West to Egypt, Iran, Turkey. There it could gain mass popularity and by now in these countries there're best by quality hookahs in the world.
Today hookahs can be found in homes or restaurants all around the world. Smoking shisha has got not only pleasant scent and calming effect, but also is fun for non-smokers as the tobacco isn’t addictive. But nevertheless hookah is harmful for health as well as cigarettes. Hookah smokers prefer it for fun it brings: they like to spend time chilling in a lounge with friends, talking, drinking something non-alcoholic like tea and smoking some tasty fruit tobacco.
In Minsk there’re several venues offering its guests to smoke hookahs. Usually these bars have an appropriate East atmosphere inside that inevitably attracts visitors.
