We have created a state-of-the-art banya in which we offer services and a place to revitalize bodies and relax minds. It is a place to meet with old friends, make new ones, or have a quite time just for you refreshing and energizing yourself. Archimedes Banya is a remarkable blend of 'past and present', where ancient traditions of Greek laconica, Turkish hammam, German thermen, Russian banya, etc combine with science and technology to create an experience like no other. Detoxing in perfect heat rooms, plunging in an ice-cold pool, enjoying a breathtaking view on a sun-lit deck, conversing over a delicious meal - you can have it all in a quintessentially San Francisco style. And yet there is more. Famous venik platza, a rich pallet of massages, scrubs, wraps, herbal and mineral baths will help you leave behind the worries of your day and explore new sources of energy.

Coming from Europe, this place looks like a cheap sauna club rather than a spa. The surroundings are not welcoming, the building is outdated, the reception is not informative, and the choice of activities is limited. That said, as this is probably the only place...More
