***Russian bath has the same levels of humidity as the air we breathe every day: about 60%. And the temperatures usually do not exceed 80C/180F. Russians pay special attention to the quality of steam: by throwing water (water can be mixed with different herbal extracts)  on stones heated to extreme temperatures behind metal doors, they create steam droplets of exceptionally small size; this makes breathing easy and enjoyable. And of course there’s a famous Russian venik – leafy, fragrant bundle of birch twigs used to gently beat and massage fellow bathers.

Program can be changed or filled with other content in accordance with client’s wishes.

Russian banya

 

What can be more authentic Russian than a banya (steam bath) ? This ancient bathhouse tradition is one of the most well known symbols of the nation.  Besides washing  Banya is a place for communication. Russians don't spend all their time in the parnaya ( a room with hot wet steam). During a break we walk out to another room that has a large long table and a few benches. There people take a break from the hot temperature and relax, drink aroma tea or special herbal tea, have conversations about life and share their ideas to each other.  Banya  can be followed by a refreshing leap into snow or even into a hole cut through a frozen pool.

 

Russian bath has the same levels of humidity as the air we breathe every day: about 60%. And the temperatures usually do not exceed 80C/180F. Russians pay special attention to the quality of steam: by throwing water (water can be mixed with different herbal extracts)  on stones heated to extreme temperatures behind metal doors, they create steam droplets of exceptionally small size; this makes breathing easy and enjoyable. And of course there’s a famous Russian venik – leafy, fragrant bundle of birch twigs used to gently beat and massage fellow bathers.
