Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your guide will pick you up from your place of stay and on your way over to the Baths will enlighten you about the Russian bathing traditions and the history of the Sanduny Baths.

    As you enter the building admire the elaborate mosaics and frescoes in the hallway leading to the changing rooms. Besides being subdivided by gender between women and men, the baths are also subdivided into three classes for men and two for women. Your tour guide will take you to the “Male Top Class” the best baths available for males and to “Female Top Class” for the Ladies*. 

    Once you get yourself situated, change into the appropriate clothing and enjoy the experience in going into a hot steam room, heated by wood just as hundreds years ago. Dip in to the waters of a cold pool surrounded with 200-year-old frescoes. Use a venik (besom) briskly all over your body – this way epitomizing your Russian Experience.

    A Russian proverb perfectly summarizes the health benefits of the banya, and if literally translated goes something like this: "The day you spend in the banya is the day you do not age."

    All bathing accessories are INCLUDED: Sanduny banya hat, towel, bedsheet, slippers. For additional food or drinks you will pay separately.
    *If you would like to stay together we can upgrade you to a private room with no extra charge (if available). Please let us know in advance.
