specialRussian banya (sauna)

Russian culture differs from European. We are aware that European culture bestows worthy tribute to Russianliterature, music and ballet. We'd like to reveal for you one more element of Russian culture for you — Russian banya (Russian bath). This word does not exist even in European languages. In Europe (and in the whole world) they use the term sauna, though sauna and Russian banya are different.

Warm up first and then check out the steam room (parilka), which is usually heated to some 100° to 120°C; this is where you can be beaten about the body with dried branches (vennik), usually birch, oak or juniper. Afterthat, you can take a small break to cool down and then get back in. Half the people in the parilka will claimthere's not enough heat and start calling for someone to throw more water on the hot rocks, while the other halffeebly croak, "too much, too much". The guys who want more steam usually win. This combination of heat, steam,and physical abuse purges your body of impurities and gives you an unforgettable experience unattainable by mereshowers or baths.
