Tour to a Russian bath (Banya)
Russian baths are a mixture of hot and wet steam and are an intrinsic part of Russian culture.
We offer you a unique tour to a private bath, which is completely made of wood.
The temperature in the steam room reaches up to 100 degrees above zero. You can go into the Banya for up to 3-5 mins per innings to allow your pores to open and clean. It is common to use a ‘broom’ (from the dried-up branches of an oak or birch) for better circulation of blood. You can use this to give your body a form of massage. Then you can dip in a cold pool to cool down a little. You can repeat a session several times and then you can go to the restroom to talk with your friends and drink tea or kvas (traditional Russian drink). This original tour is truly Russian in every way.
One session includes:
- 2 hours in a bath without guide
- 1 steaming 2-3 minutes
- Return transfer
- Towels, sheets, slippers
