What's a banya?

A banya is a traditional Russian spa, similar to a sauna, but with extreme temperatures of up to 120°C. For 1000 years, Russians have entertained the tradition of going to the banya with friends and family. In this warm and stimulating atmosphere, people sweat, apply mud or honey masks, are massaged, and slap themselves with birch bathbrooms called “veniki”. This may sound intense, but it’s actually very relaxing. Just after a sweat session, Russians would dive in the snow or in a cold pool to cool down. Dare to try it yourself?

Traditional food, tea and beers are usually part of the experience, together with side activities and games.

All in all, going to the banya is a privileged moment of peace, quiet and relaxation that leaves you on cloud nine.

A must if you come to Russia!

First stop – Sergiyev Posad

We will pick you up at the meeting point and put you in our classic Soviet van heading to Sergiyev Posad. Sergiyev Posad is a small city about an hour from Moscow on the Golden Ring, world famous for its monastery – the Trinity Lavra of Saint Sergius. This fifteenth-century monastery is recognized as one of the greatest and largest in Russia.

On our way to the banya, we will take a break at the monastery for an hour.

Second stop – the banya

Ten minutes outside of Sergiyev Posad is our main destination – a typical wooden banya on a lake. After the monastery, we will guide you through a 3-hour banya session just as the locals do: with a Russian skin scrub treatment, as well as traditional food* and drinks. You can swim in the lake during the summer season or break the ice for a quick dive in winter, if you dare…

Our 2-in-1 banya tour is all-inclusive to give you the most relaxed experience. You only need your swimsuit and we’ll take care of all the rest!

Book now and experience banya with us!

Don’t forget to let us know your dietary requirements.*
